\"\"

She knew, what with
The crashing of crockery
And furniture and the
Raised voices, that it
Was going to be one

Of those nights, and
The moon shining in
Through the bedroom
Window was a long
Way off and the dark

Skies were a promise
Of nothing new and
Pretty much plenty
Of the same over and
Over again, and the

Snuggling down into
The itchy blankets
And squeezing shut
Of the eyes, did nothing
And do nothing to put

Aside those kind of nights
That return in dreams like
An unpleasant smell from
An undesirable source, like
The blows and slaps given
With such cold and brutal force.
