” In the beginning was Scream

Who begat Blood

Who begat Eye

Who begat Fear

Who begat Wing

Who begat Bone

Who begat Granite

Who begat Violet

Who begat Guitar

Who begat Sweat

Who begat Adam

Who begat Mary

Who begat God

Who begat Nothing

Who begat Never

Never Never Never

Who begat Crow

Screaming for Blood

Grubs, crusts

Anything

Trembling featherless elbows in the nest’s filth ”

– Ted Hughes, CROW
