  • The Deep End
    her movements that made her seem tantalisingly out of reach even when she was astride me I have an image in my head of smoothly curving buttocks deeply cleft and coloured globes of sallow skin endlessly descending on my flanks The frozen frame of our first kiss We murmured into each other s mouths for hours the grapes of her lips just barely brushing mine The heat of her her whispering breath My mouth crawling with tiny treading ants I remember her sitting on the bed after she had told me what she had to say a dazed look on her face The smoke from her joint curled round her face and her squinting eyes looked up at mine trying to focus I sat down on the bed and stared at her I can remember thinking that her contact lenses looked like jellyfish A few weeks after she told me she said she could no longer stay that she could not make love because she had been to the hospital and the doctor said that the pain that had been troubling her was a fibroid in her uterus He said it was the size of a four month foetus She needed to be alone I said I understood that I was too old for her in any case She didn t answer We hung up I won t forget the moment when she told me what had happened though She stood against the window a hand glued to the pane a finger twitching nervously over its windowprint She didn t look at me I could only see her profile and then she said it all the unspeakable sentences the words that never should be heard together What the father had done to her with a tool in his garage About Erik Martiny Erik Martiny teaches literature art and translation to students at Henri IV in Paris He writes mostly about art literature and fashion His articles can be found in The Times Literary Supplement The London Magazine Aesthetica Magazine Whitewall Magazine Fjords Review World Literature Today and a number of others Mail More Posts 4 Comments comments Prev Lady Macbeth Next Apps for writers Related Posts Possession The Things They Don t Tell You About Fire In the School Reception One Wednesday Morning Litro TV Recent Posts Bringing Up Baby In the Night Time Before the Sun Rises at the Gate Theatre True Love in Los Angeles A R BY ANY OTHER NAME The Echo Travelling in Fiji The Litro Blog View Archive 11th February 2016 Litro 149 The Love issue Letter from the Editor By Eric Akoto Love we spend our lives craving it in one form or another searching for it and talking about it Its meaning is felt more than it is clearly expressed Some call it the greatest virtue Continue reading 9th December 2015 Litro 148 The Going Home issue Letter from the Editor By Eric Akoto This month in Litro 148 we explore the notion

  • Lady Macbeth
    thing that they had done together The Thane of Fife had a wife and all his pretty ones lie in cold beds now Ignore them suckling at her in her sleep Ignore their grasping little fingers He sleeps no more He doesn t say his prayers And here s the smell of blood still But his nightmares visit him asleep or not Little dead children hold his daggers to their throats prostitutes become his witches whispering O full of scorpions is my mind dear wife She says You used to look at me She stops her monthly bleeding As if her body knows she s taken children Her hands will not come clean She starts to dress herself in pale silks screaming her innocence at him in a swish of fabric A soft sky blue glows against her skin cream sets off the colour of her hair Yet here s a spot She may as well have dressed herself in shadow She gets good at telling herself how fine and justifiable his abandonment of her is In the end she does it neatly outside where the mess won t fall to other women In her swoop she wonders if he hears the screech of the owl if he ll be wakeful still pacing their floors speaking out loud to spectres Too late for that now To bed to bed there s knocking at the gate About Abi Hynes Mail More Posts 1 Comments comments Prev A freelance creative s guide to getting paid Next The Deep End Related Posts Valerie Geary The End of Love No Such Luck Terry Accident Report Litro TV Recent Posts Bringing Up Baby In the Night Time Before the Sun Rises at the Gate Theatre True Love in Los Angeles A R BY ANY OTHER NAME The Echo Travelling in Fiji The Litro Blog View Archive 11th February 2016 Litro 149 The Love issue Letter from the Editor By Eric Akoto Love we spend our lives craving it in one form or another searching for it and talking about it Its meaning is felt more than it is clearly expressed Some call it the greatest virtue Continue reading 9th December 2015 Litro 148 The Going Home issue Letter from the Editor By Eric Akoto This month in Litro 148 we explore the notion of what Going Home means to us Is it a familiar physical space A refuge A feeling A state of mind Or is home actually to be found in another human being maybe your partner your parents How do you know when you have found it Continue reading Contact Us General 44 0 20 3371 9971 info litro co uk Sales Advertising enquiries 44 0 20 3371 9971 Email Sales Magazine Editorial editor litro co uk All Online Editorial online litro co uk Book Reviews Author Interviews reviews litro co uk Film Arts Editorial arts litro co uk Litro Lab Podcast litrolab litro co uk LitroTV litrotv litro co uk Litro Listings

  • I Have a Gzhelian Age Heart in Me
    or into a microphone or at a loved one who is holding fighting conch shells over both of their ears Then in the summer I roll the television and the leather chair out onto the extension roof and relax in the wide daylight under the high altitude clouds and the aeroplanes descending west towards Heathrow Also there is this Gzhelian Age stomach in me and it is always empty and growling with emptiness and its emptiness can feel miraculous and exhausting and instinctive and its emptiness can migrate thoughtlessly around my body And most evenings I spend training and if the telephone rings I refuse to answer it lunging and lifting on the wrinkling living room carpet with the shadows fidgeting on the shuttered blinds and the draw chain bolted over the front door And I have so much Gzhelian Age blood in me and it is thick as tar pits and if I cut myself shaving the sink looks swilled with oil and if I lean in close enough I can see little skeletons arranged in layers inside and some are like the skeletons of conodonts and coelacanths and some are like the skeletons of human beings holding each others hands But one afternoon I will start growing plants plunging the seeds into the potting soil with a long dowel of rounded wood and waiting for clematis flowers and barberry flowers and marsh marigold flowers to appear in the garden like quiet coloured birds Because before I moved to Camberwell I lived in Purbeck in a hotel room overlooking the sea and I remember waking once at sunrise to the walls glowing red and to the sound of crowds of gulls and gannets stood outside the windows and knocking their beaks against the glass About Tom Offland Tom Offland lives in London His work has recently appeared in theNewerYork Corium Magazine and Keep This Bag Away From Children He is currently working on his first collection of short stories Mail Web More Posts 2 Comments comments Prev The Girl and the Coin Next Working when on the road tips for supporting yourself on an adventure Related Posts Paper Cuts God at Your Doorstep The Narrow Spaces Between Litro TV Recent Posts Bringing Up Baby In the Night Time Before the Sun Rises at the Gate Theatre True Love in Los Angeles A R BY ANY OTHER NAME The Echo Travelling in Fiji The Litro Blog View Archive 11th February 2016 Litro 149 The Love issue Letter from the Editor By Eric Akoto Love we spend our lives craving it in one form or another searching for it and talking about it Its meaning is felt more than it is clearly expressed Some call it the greatest virtue Continue reading 9th December 2015 Litro 148 The Going Home issue Letter from the Editor By Eric Akoto This month in Litro 148 we explore the notion of what Going Home means to us Is it a familiar physical space A refuge
