“We gathered around mother and beat the loosened floor with our pots. We broke through the floorboards. We shattered the concrete. We made a hole that looked into the basement. We and mother stared into the basement bowels. We looked at the illumination. We saw the places where the creature had shit. There were piles of feces everywhere. The mounds were brown and stinking. The smell came up from the hole. It smelled like meat. Dirty, rotten meat. Mother brought the hammer down again. She widened the perimeter of the hole.”
