He took the baby by the legs
and smashed its head upon the ground
dashing its brains and teeth on the floor.
The baby’s mother
rushed the man and clawed his face
dragging her nails down his skin
and creating rivers of blood
she pushed her claws into his eyes and blinded him.
He knocked her down
and sightlessly moved about the room
knocking down a table and lamp
and treading on the lifeless body
of the tiny baby.
The moon was a razor of light
cutting into the darkness
on the street a failed artist
high on some manufactured drug
grown in the sink of a rotten bathroom
takes a knife to the throat of a tourist
and while screaming for money
slices the throat of the young woman
taking her head away from her body.
A driver of a red car
enraged by the slowness of the pedestrian
driven to a rage
slams his car into the bodies
spraying the people into the chain link fence
that surrounded an empty carpark.
The car jerked horribly as it passed over one of the people
the driver, teeth gritted and certain
that his anger is pure
drives off into the dark streets
leaving behind a headlight and a side mirror.
