The protagonist is watching a nonstop report on the death of the last orangutan. She is also upset about having had to get up twice from the couch to answer the phone, both times to her mother calling by accident. Her fridge is stocked full with processed meats that she devours all day with no pause, while her intestines send up S.O.S. burps containing the following urgent messages:
us don’t understand us? do us understand us?
can us hear us?
uh, us.. let us tell us.. that, us like us..
hello? hi. hi?
can us stop us?
