Contents:
Introduction: Worth risking life for
A tree of veins
Everything you can imagine is real
The origins of the world
At first the infant
The struggle for existence
Somewhere under my left ribs
To live is so startling
Small things, with great love
O the bones of the people
So we beat on
At close of day
There are always two deaths
And the flesh of the child grew warm.
