Kathleen & Johnny


We were so envious of Kathleen for being with Johnny
he was five years older than us and they’d been together since she was fourteen
we were so jealous even though he hit her sometimes slapped her face

but they were always together

Johnny was interested in the British Movement in the NF in National Socialism he said they had something he said they were onto something
I wondered about the scar that began at his top lip skin laced tight up to his septum
I wondered whether he used to have a cleft palate
I couldn’t help wondering whether he’d ever tasted glass from the neck of a broken bottle
