Knives cut deep, deep enough that life ends with just a gaze. You can count a life in many different ways: a flick of a rock against a wall, a branch snapped off a tree, a sad relative that doesn't know to cry yet. One by one the lives you take are counted - you living for strength without that number that has fallen by your hand.
The life that was there last: that was a bad one. The man died dragging at the ground; a cruel man does that Ė he clutches for dirt, wondering what strength he can gain from the number of people the man ignored. You would never say that men deserve to enjoy that. Thatís something you learn struggling with people as they die. Some choked, some find a way to live murdering the spirit of someone else.
Here I am, choking bad. The sun is hot. There they are. We are alive. I have left them but they have left me. That blood I can see is blood that I needed. Am I supposed to tell that itís my blood? I feel like spitting at the sun.
Iíll tell that one something. Shorter. Iíve neverÖ the thief doesnít know anythingÖ there are people who deserve to die more than others. The man rests, that is to a murderer what I would call quite amazingÖ I want to tell him that you canít do that and be guilty. The wind was hot, I donít care. They turn or they stand. I feel Iím there. The thief speaks aloud:
Enjoy, my brothers and sisters.
