Everywhere-the air around her, the ground beneath her, the stars above-rippled with the soul-wrenching cries of
hunger: the trees and bushes and plants all twisted and bent, their branches and stems clawing the sky in skeletal panic; the

There are some that I shall never open now.
This summer I complete my fiftieth year;
Death is gnawing at me ceaselessly.
