The Incredible Contracting Man - Andrew Darlington

 

Harvey wrestles briefly with his conscience,

it proves a devious adversary,

it favours some tricky holds,

pins him down to the canvas

in a headlock,

grapples him this way and that,

but the end is predetermined,

Ruth is way too tasty

to resist for long…

Ruth returns Harvey’s smile,

hands it back to him

in an empty pizza box,

she never liked it anyway,

something creepy about the sneery way

his lip curls up at the edge…

Ruth returns Harvey’s smile,

a bloodied twitching thing

while he groans in the corner,

the last time he’ll ever

badmouth her…
