on the counter
of the house
in which I am a visitor
there is a canister of pepper spray
and on the side
it says:

BEST BY 12/13

I read this statement
this brief warning
and feel the floor tremble
below my feet

feel the whole world

as the great blob of humanity
nudges itself
just a little closer
to extinction

by its own stupidity
