His Side o the Story

– It wuh – it wusnae –
shiffle shuffle shoes on lino
sneakers squeaken soft shoe squirmin
– Ah never, ken, it wuh, it wusnae –
clackety click o Bic on table,
broad n bloodied knuckles clenchin
– Yuh du, yuh dunnah, ken, it wusnae –
crack o biro plastic shattrin
splittin splintrin crick n cracklin
– Yuh nu, its no, yuh nu, yuh nevuh –
spittle sprayin tongue trapped clenchin
testin tryin pressin teeth like
bruken biro useless wordless

– Why duncha nevuh –
cheeks n lips n chin all squirmin
like the sticky inky smearin
– YUH NEVUH FUCKEN LISTEN TAE ME
