Max and his buddy were well back in a crooked little booth, which seemed to swallow up every discernible feature but their lit cigarette ends. Both of them were hunched inwards, like they’d been punched in the guts repeatedly, until those drooping cigarette ashes nearly bumped each other. Still, despite the overly loud and obnoxious new acid metal rap that was pushing its way aggressively into conversations they had a small gadget on the table, behind the ashtray, specifically for combating microphones and other listening devices. The ashtray contained several crushed, grayish spiders with their dead white and orange filter legs splayed out at careless angles.
