i spat it out

the crunchy bits
that’s all i see when i look
at humans
the more clear and pure the flavor
the more white and crunchy their bones

i’ve heard they have skin, and hair
but i don’t taste all that
just the crunchy bits

oh the first time i tasted one
with a visible soul
was awful, i spat it out
my friend laughed and laughed at me
i had to hear
‘i told you so’ for centuries after that

in a pinch, any human will do
the mature human’s flavor is so complex
but i really prefer the crunchy ones
over the ‘dark marrow’ ones
as they tend to get stuck in my teeth
