today in manhattan i went out of my way to step on a snail. sheer malice, i guess. crunched like thunder in the heavens. rumble, rumble, then it ceased suddenly, without fading. fucking snails; like armored slugs. you think getting wrapped up in your shell can fucking protect you? do you think you evoke the nautilus? i'll see you smashed. your attempt at defense just angers me. i can draw out leviathan with a fish hook. you think i can't end you just as easily? drawn fucking pistols. i don't even care.
