last night he
hit her
again. it felt
good,
his foot in her
pregnant
belly;
it yielded like
one of those
rubber toys
kids
jump about
on.
the broad
grin on his
face
like gravestones
lit
from inside;
she imagined for one slow
minute
that his twisted
mouth
would swallow up
everything: her, the
room,
the unborn child.
she grasped the rug
in her two frightened
hands
against the
pain
as thought it were a
magic carpet
that would
fly her out of
there.
when he was
finished
he stood over
her
gasping for
breath
while she looked up at
him
like some penitential
supplicant
at her
psychopathic god.
for the first
time
she grinned;
not because she was
planning his
demise
but because she finally
knew
it would never
end.
