Superlatives for everest

How much stronger is your pain
Stronger the devastated emotion
The burning of your nights
How savage the unformulated aim
How carnal the knowledge
The blank hatred
The wish to die
And to make someone die with you

Closing your eyes to look at the mirror
Cynical orphans
Depopulated words
Stuck in a throat full of gravel
Warm, red
Boiling upside down
How precious are the wounds
What a shelter for nowhere
