So Cold

 

 It's so cold, I chop up my wife, her arms and legs.

I throw her amputations into the mirror. I chop her

hands and feet, her toes, her fingers, they wiggle

around like wooden worms. I throw them into the

mirror, but it's still cold...

  I go outside into the snow, and the howling wind,

and hunt the naked Hill Tribe women, and drag 

them by their long black hair back to my cottage, and 

chop them up too, and throw their amputations

into the mirror...

  But it makes no difference, the mirror screams 

for more warmth. So finally I chop up my body,

till I am in a thousand pieces, and reflections

clamber out of the mirror, like crazy greasy spiders,

and chew me into oblivion, and I am no more...

  And the mirror is warm...
