Bad Thing

Lying on her side on the floor she stared at a cup. She thought about what had happened, and how it existed in the world now like an unchangeable and definite solid.

To begin with there had been no words, only the staring and a feeling that what had happened actually was the cup. By looking at it she got to know it. The cup could not be ignored or denied because there it was.

She eventually realised that if the bad thing that had happened had edges and could be looked at, then it must be separate from her and she must, therefore, be able to get away from it. She kept lying there looking, not used to it enough yet to leave it.

(Karla Black, Tollcross 111, Ed. Neil Bickerton, Neil Mulholland, Glasgow 2005)
