This Dominion

I evict. The most I must
kill is a mouse. A rat.
Just a tray of
clear glue. And then

squealing.

It is said: dirt is matter out of place.
How long did it wait, unknowing, for
me? Unable to free its
paws.

I need pliers to clean
it. Reset
it. It
squealed. It took

three blows of
my hammer.

  1. Oh my.
    That’s why I’ve always preferred cats or the mechanical traps.

  2. Well, it managed to bypass the gauntlet of mechanical traps, ended up in the glue. It was a mouse, still trying to catch the rat.

  3. I am sooo glad I missed that part of Saturday afternoon.
