“Her peculiar brand of horror
comes less from the inevitability
of disaster, then from the ease
which it might have been avoided”
—Francis Wyndham, “Miss Highsmith,” 
New Statesman 31 May 1963

He could’ve said no—
but he didn’t because
he needed to get off

He knew I was just as—
fixated on him as he was
plus he needed money

He was pretty easy—
the ease with which he
let it happen each time

But I wasn't easy—
killing him sweetly
slowly, each time
