after a few weeks of this new start
though she could see he was trying

she could also see that it wasn't working

oh she loved him and everything

but she couldn't keep living through this
like this 
for ever
& so one night when he was fucked up

she slipped the gun
into his open mouth
blew his head all over the wall
behind the bed
where they had made their babies
she sat there afterwards for a while

cried a little
made some cocoa
read a Stephen King novel
until she fell asleep

in the night she cuddled him

in his dark uncomplicated wetness
