We decided to have the abortion, became

killers together. The period that came

changed nothing. They were dead, that young couple

who had been for life.

As we talked of it in bed, the crash

was not a surprise. We went to the window,

looked at the crushed cars and the gleaming

curved shears of glass as if we had

done it. Cops pulled the bodies out

Bloody as births from the small, smoking

aperture of the door, laid them

on the hill, covered them with blankets that soaked

through. Blood

began to pour

down my legs into my slippers. I stood

where I was until they shot the bound

form into the black hole

of the ambulance and stood the other one

up, a bandage covering its head,

stained where the eyes had been.

The next morning I had to kneel

an hour on that floor, to clean up my blood,

rubbing with wet cloths at those glittering

translucent spots, as one has to soak

a long time to deglaze the pan

when the feast is over.

Anonymous submission.
