Woman and Dog(s)

when the dog is born the born is killed in a hand instantly so that no one sees that the dog is born at all, and the woman who watches at night the female dog swollen and wholly heinous something very diabolical strikes her and the woman warms her hands by the fire, the fire tinted with green because the paper burning she put in is not pure and is printed with something that burns greenly, shifting her feet, woman eyes rolling up and down her posit lolling against armchair very crimson like petals some kind of petals vermillion in green light, bless her soul the woman thinks, the dog is born and more is more less and less often but they come out the woman wishing dogs could lay eggs instead of getting themselves impregnated like this now no firewood more so than ever, she must go downstairs outside to the snow the shed in the snow to get such a lack of firewood but more abundances of newspapers half rotten wet, the dog quiet like slugs never making sounds, the woman goes prepares a bucket a cloth a mop some cold water and some boiled one mixed together so forms warmth above frozen she does, she goes about her errands coming back to see newborn pups all five of them the mother desperate and sleepy but warmth in her eyes, the woman takes the pups with closed eyes away gently puts they away in the bucket and goes to sleep leaving the bucket outside.
