before the cylindrical Razzia

before the canned razzia insecticide

the spiderwebs that the previous resident had installed

somehow did the work, the cockroaches emerged from

the wet Pampas autumn, but remained small

I bought the little roach motels

one day the supermarket Chinese were out of the little black roach motels

I bought the Raid cylinder and

after a week of using it, the technology of the spiderweb acoustics

seemed no longer operative, like abandoned machine propellors

of Teotihuacan, to which the instructions were lost or ineligible,

can longer make stone cities float in lake winter

the cockroaches are a bit bigger now,

they have a different pattern on their ugly wings, and I hate them much more.
