Stomp

 

by David Mac

 

 

We laugh about how

she

stomped on my

skull on

the kitchen

floor

 

Ha-ha how

the blood

leaked

out of

my head

 

When time is

long it’s

okay

to

laugh

about

violence

 

At the

time

things aren’t

always so

funny

At the

time they

hurt like

hell

 

There’s still

blood on

her kitchen

floor

and on her

heels

(bits of

my brain)

 

It’s okay I

like to

leave

reminders

of where

love

once

was not

 

 

 

David Mac’s words can be found in many mags, journals, site, ‘zines and blogs. He’s had collections published by Erbacce Press, Knives Forks & Spoons, Writing Knights Press, Ten Pages Press, Lulu, as well as various self-published collections. He lives in the UK, deep in the Bedfordshire Hell. He contemplates death. Sometimes he contemplates life.
