He Shall Not Be Consumed.

They may not dip their beaks
Into his mouth
Devour his words
Vomit them without meaning

They may not rip claws
Through his breast
Take his heart
Pretend it was not Red

They may not crunch
Into his bones
Consume him
Shit him out unmade in marble

We shall shout his words
Scare the vultures
From their feast

We shall seize his heart
Hide it safely
In our own breasts

We shall take his bones
Build a world
For the free
