Sport 18: Autumn 1997
Stroking stubble, he blows smoke
at the ceiling. Cath's flabby
after the kid, leaks milk.
Shirl has a harder frame, she made him
bottle Sam at night. He'd preferred
soft Cath, her moans flattered
when Shirl's didn't. Shirl's red-head rage!
Cath's hair has lost its way
like tattered grass. He wants her
heart hot, creamy. He dislikes
the green bitterness in the corners
of her mouth, lined like her
leather skirt. Shirl wants him
at some school do for Sam's sake. Cath'll
come reluctantly, again. She'll clutch
the kid hard and she and Shirl won't
see one another.
