It's a rib cage with a heart beating inside
Like a baby bunny's soft eyes
Like a tiger cracking neck bones
Like a puppy's too big feet
Like a hawk beak scissoring a live snake
Don't ring that bell unless you know in is out
That the gin is poisoned with immortality
That you've got what it takes
With no where to take it.
