Shake, shake;
loose, loose,
cry, cry,
gurgle, gurgle,
laugh, laugh.

Cry, cry.
Smash, smash.
Num! Num!
(Make numb; make numb.)
Slurp, slurp;
crunch, crunch;
teeth, teeth;
fat limbs.

Up! Up!
Time runs, time runs.
Along, along
and back, back.
Grow, grow (and grow).
In, out; in, out;
snap, snap;
crash, crash;
shout, shout.

Noise, noise,
silence, silence.
Alone, lonely thoughts.
In, out; in, out.
Shame, shame.
Blame, blame.
Smack, smack;
kiss, kiss.

Ouch! Ouch!
Long, long;
short stab.
Thud, thud.
Decay, decay.
Baby to grave;
sperm to spade.

This is your life.
