BABY ASSAULTING MOTHER
She opened her mouth to the size of a small black hole which was immediately filled with a spoonful of pablum. She watched the yellow goo swirl around in her daughter's mouth like yellow clothes spinning around and around in a dryer. Without knowing why she thought of how the Canadians were responsible for the invention of pablum and the space arm. She let this thought drift out from the orbit of her mind.
From the living room, the television blared out the importance of clean clothes.
She looked at the filth fringing the sleeves of her sweat top. She stared out into the world with open eyes. She sat there waiting for more.
She would never again revisit this thought of pablum and the space arm. She sat like a baby thinking of what she was doing to her.
