i looked up. they had made their webs in the rafters, these two silent architects. so i knocked them into a foil pan where they lightly clattered. exoskeletons, spinning and disoriented. so i sprayed aerosol on them in great amounts, until swimming to the center of the pan they found each other, grappled, and broke their own necks. i heard it. two faint snaps. i did not look up at the empty webs, but went my way. and i am human.
