The Experiment


  The flat was tiny. She stared at me through thick lensed

glasses, like the bottoms of milk bottles.

- Come look out my window!

  She spoke with cruel lips. I stared through the cracked 

glass at the lights of the city. In the flat below a dog

barked loudly.

- I'll leave the light on, will I?

- Yeh okay.

  She undid her braid, and undressed. An astral body, but

I wished she'd get rid of the ugly glasses. She got under

the sheets on the mattress on the floor.

  - You can get undressed too! You're shy!

  So I did.

- Don't you like to kiss?

- Alright.

- No, I can't, I'd like to, but I've only just moved in, I haven't

searched my things for my diaphragm yet.

- Maybe...

- No, you'll have to find a boy for that... Look I know a place

where you can go and get help, where they're really kind

and loving. They'll help you give up, get sober.

  Just then I noticed that she'd taken off her glasses, and 

that she didn't have any eyes, that the eyes I'd seen before 

were fake eyes, painted onto the lens of her glasses.

  I saw that she was eyeless now, bending over me,

dressed in a tight cream uniform, as I lay strapped into

a cot, attached to tubes and drips, and machines. And 

I realised that my memories of walking her home from 

the nightclub, of going to her flat, of staring out her window,

of going to bed with her, were all false memories.

  Her eyeless face turned and gazed at me, as she 

pushed further over me, her breasts rubbing against my 

face, to insert a catheter up my penis. The monitors beeped...
