Grandfather

Sometimes he comes home drunk. Sometimes he crashes in the bed. Sometimes he yells about the house. Sometimes she stands and watches the match ensues. Sometimes she gets in the middle of it and tells him to stop. Sometimes he does not hit her. Sometimes he hits the woman. Sometimes he hits her. And sometimes they hit him. Today he hits the woman. He will not be told what to do. She slips out the door, but not before she hears another crack against skin.
