| “In the desert|
I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
Who, squatting upon the ground,
Held his heart in his hands,
And ate of it.
I said: "Is it good, friend?"
"It is bitter-bitter," he answered;
"But I like it
Because it is bitter,
And because it is my heart.”
Stephen Crane quotes (American short-story Writer, Novelist and Poet. 1871-1900)
