i just searched "animals that eat themselves" on google but all i found was "animals eating themselves to death" which is not the same thing and gave me great displeasure

i'd like to think that sometimes humans and animals eat themselves for various unknown reasons

i have never seen this documented though

if i had, the above sentence could be factual and i could sound "informed" by saying it

instead i will say that each letter of this poem will resort to cannibalism and devour the letter before it

until the only letter that is left is the letter "i"

which will then be forced to devour itself because of its extreme loneliness

and i say that because i'd like to have concrete evidence to support my belief that living things devour themselves sometimes

and i say that because i think my existence would be a lot happier if living things did devour themselves sometimes
