“Come and be killed” by Stanley Eveling

JIM: ” . . . When I’m old, when I’m very old, when I’m old, toothless and without sense, I’ll lie in a huge, soft bed with a zip fastener . . . and I’ll zip it up and I’ll zip it down . . . and up and down and have pictures of you, and when I’m very tired I’ll close my eyes and mutter your name . . . in an old man’s high-pitched, senile voice, with me zip fastener dangling from me fingers like a rosary I’ll tell all the girls I have known and who have known me and that’s how I’ll go . . .”
