bulbous eyes like grapes burst
between my teeth—
I'm eating nightmares
and it's lovely.

Oh my...bubbling corpses...how morbid. The imagery in that opening line is so vivid and chilling. Excellent work.
"Entrails tripping." Ha! The speaker's bowels seem to be falling out-what a tragicomedic tone.
"Bulbous eyes like grapes." Yes. Powerful simile. Hard-hitting. Grotesque.
"I'm eating nightmares and it's lovely." Nice nonchalant tone here.
"Empty chests." This entire 'autopsy' stanza was very innovative-loved the y-incision part.
"But night will come again to steal my eyes." Brilliant ending. Passionate. Raw. Sorrowful. Angsty.
GREAT POEM :D
