Something Extra

A Poem by Ruth Nineke


a little something extra

she’s so pretty.
that girl’s so beautiful.
even lifeless.
like a porcelain doll.
she’s so milky, so fair.
and those lips.
so perfect.
that girl’s so special.
she’s got it all.
i killed that girl, in the woods.
inside of a shed.
i pushed her down.
i made her cry.
i made her beg.
i cut her slow.
i fed her mud.
i gutted her insides,
pushed her heart
down her throat.
i made her ugly.
i let her die.

she’ll never smile again.
