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, The Black Riders

Yes, its a series :) This one is as stunning as the angel if not more! I really dig the loose lines in the face and how they are opposing the precise lined back and its texture. Are these image-poem pairings for a book?
