All the life-lines have disappeared. I have neither past, nor future.
And erased them, completely. I keep my hands well hidden
An evil goblin came one night In the depths of my pockets.
The emptiness will blind you. When I have to write something down
If you open them to see my palms, I use my teeth.
My hands are in fists, I eat the paper.
I have nothing to offer or say. I am more acrid that way.
