strolling


they continued strolling
strolling about the city
the city
the sunless city
as ordinary as any


they continued strolling
down the steps


the long steep steps
to the sea
to sleep
to sleep on the sand
by the poison sea

now



with a tilt of her head
her curly-blonde head
and the wink of an eye
an eye
as blue and blank as the sky
she stopped
and she knelt
to pick up the belt
the shiny black belt
and she said

with a smile

you're gonna get it
now
motherfucker
