[02] Eating Baby

Rating: 5.0

Sky suffers from acidity
Eats moon at night like
An anti-acid tablet
When we enter
Into the kingdom of death.

Map was eaten up by the hunger
Moon by sky- who is now
Eating baby as a termite?

Many imageries pelting one after another. I hardly imagine anything and I've fnished your poem. But haha, don; t worry, It's not bad, I had to scrutinise it line by line though. It is certainly a difficult topic you're dealing with; wanting to show how viciouswe have become with this imagery of bing cannabalistic to something so close to our hearts and species- our babies. I felt you brought it out pretty well, and the imageries that you compare to let us understand the next recurring parttern is really interesting. I would have liked it better if it was just a teeny bit more leaborated though, so that I can get it easier, but that's just my own opinion. Good job an the whole!
