I play freeze tag with spirits suspending
over counters in the kitchen. 
Forgot the waffles,
now, taking up residence in nearby car trunk,
in the color of a gangrene foot.
Detached the kitchen sink faucet accessory and
gunned down all the flies within spraying distance.
Whirring fan blades provided the eulogy.
