bushmeat

bushmeat, what we do to animals
what our rhetoric does to humans to animals
what animals suffer (rhetoric, humans)
what humans suffer (humans, rhetoric)
speech is a violation
speech is slaughter
the imminence of speech: annihilation to the limit
the immanence of speech: limitless annihilation
bushmeat: everyone disappears
permanence of disappearance
an animal is a human
talk goes on and on precisely the same
talk is slaughter
listen to me, i will kill you
deaf and dead you: i will kill you
i will devour you your bones
bushmeat, dead with the death of the last animal
with the last you, bushmeat gone with your death

don't stop now

when the guns come
salute the stupid people
open the mouths of the animals
open the mouths of the mouths
salute those who salute you
salute you stupid animals

animals we play taps for you
if you sing we shoot faster
if you don't sing we shoot slower
die you stupid animals

i could not have written, nor have sacrificed,
i am rewritten

                 illusion of the sacrifice
    only knew how he lived, how useless this, unworthy sacrifice,
 	sacrifice of being

o angels o dark horses of sacrifice,
it wasn't the gods that did the sacrifice,
from then on, speech, corrals, sacrifice, contract-gift

                 illusion of the sacrifice
    only knew how he lived, how useless this, unworthy sacrifice,
 	sacrifice of being

to him, and it changed his, dark horse of sacrifice, given to the queen
the voice of god called upon her to sacrifice her three children
madness, intoxication, or love,
he wouldn't hesitate to sacrifice everything

                 illusion of the sacrifice
    only knew how he lived, how useless this, unworthy sacrifice,
 	sacrifice of being
