I Remain

These days I stay
Hungry
Not so far from
Starving
All knots and gnawing
I keep myself
Burning
No chewing just
Churning
All hips and ribs
Thick skin nonnexistent
Biting
Only backbone
No clean plate
But slating
So all I taste is drive to be
Alive
And waiting
Until my next real meal
These days I will, I will
Remain
Unsated
