More little details

“…Patroclus planted a heel

against his chest, wrenched the spear from his wound

and the midriff came out with it–so he dragged out both

the man’s life breath and the weapon’s point together.”

Yes.  Yes, I know the book is violent.  I know I have commented on it before.  But the image of Sarpedon’s innards becoming outtards won’t leave me be.
