Rescuing a spider from her house, a friend sought
paper to carry the arachnid outside. She grabbed a sheet of coupons
for house goods.

The spider was naturally suspicious of walking onto the
shifting landscape beneath their feet.

“Come on, Spider,” my friend coaxed.
“You’re gonna love this bedspread.”
“This toaster will complete you!”

We all start out trying to save the world. It is only
along the way that we decide to peddle
consumerist bullshit.
