with a preference for the most remotely impersonal execution of the hog that is consistent with daemonic strictures of husbandry and abattoir etiquette, HE—through the involvement of tortuous convolutions in his sprawling avoidance of any straightforward modalities—is embracing the experimental euthanasia methodology of biochemically active nanoparticle injection into a pedicle archway of the small pig's vertebrae, the banefully proliferant package delivery upon the relative torrent of influxing capillary fenestration is leeching into the cerebrospinal fluid, this specious diffusion of responsibility is satisfactory to HIM, with the mercurial nature of death in this execution method the executioner's presence is unlikely with the hog dying mysteriously from the catalyzation and reaction of tiletamine and xylazine in his ependymal canal, the small pig is not dying, HE is requisitioning the construction of a carbon dioxide euthanasia chamber, the ersatz finishcarpenter Denari—or Denira—is honing planks of barnwood down through troughs of wormtrack devourment for the removal of checking and wracking imperfections for deeply dipping each plank in gesso—his own concoction of wallboard pulverization and rehydration of urea isolation prills from swine urine—prills of his own spherification in a "massive" stairwell full of rainwater and lacking its stairs—this rind of gesso is drying and receiving a preparation of dampeningly adhesive sizing from steeping the puckery dermis of a great gray raybird for the reception of goldfoil contraband candy wrappers gilding, application of anaerobic impregnant sealant to the joints of the chamber, the measurements of the rectangularly prismatic euthanasia chamber 76.708 cm x 42.672 cm x 50.038 cm are a constraint of the available lumber and joinery preferences rather than the dimensions of the hog—the dimensions are of such unsuitability that the executioner is forcing the small pig’s head down between his forelegs and snapping the costrachondal junctions of his fore and aft ribs and fully fracturing fully the more conspicuous midsection ribs—liberating the marrow for a more luxurious broth—compressing him under a lid with a sheetcork gasket, a two way vacuumhood over a portal on the lid of the chamber for the exchanging of common atmosphere for pure CO2 with a flowrate of 20% per airchange, at 20% CO2 the hog is frantically scrambling for liberation with bounding pulsation of the blood, at 40% CO2 the hog is gasping in exhaustion his pallor is mottling, at 60% CO2 the hog is gasping in asphyxiation with irregular pulsation of the blood, at 80% CO2 the hog is delicately asterixically paddling his trotters, at 100% CO2 full hypercapnic asphyxiation is successful, the small pig is not dying, his bloodgas not reaching the fatal 10kPa threshold is traceable to the alveolar content and especially buoyant skincells of the great gray ray is allowing for breathability of the gesso on the chamber, the executioner is lifting the lid from the chamber is startling awake the small pig from his hypoxic stupor wrackingly throwing his great snout upward is kissing the limp daylight of the pineforest through the high abattoir window startling the executioner is lifting the hog and flipping it trotters up he is squealing and shallowly arching his spine contrary to porcine resting posture maximizing the representation of his anguish & terror to a radius on the basis of the pronouncement of the dorsal spinous processlets are radiating inward to collision—bone scraping bone is a gristling of extreme agony—he is shrieking for HER embrace and with great frustration throwing him onto the concrete floor, the hog lying on his side with a trotter limply gesturing his resignation is gazing absently plaintive through narrow lashes of his left eye or kicking the small pig over and on his knees in the basement abattoir the executioner is beating the small pig in the skull with a small hammer,
