Corner Cleaners

This brief, slice-of-life vignette depicts an inhabitant of some distant space colony terrified by a corner cleaner, an artificial rat designed to collect fallen bio-waste.

I meant little by it. Perhaps, the idea here is that technology may ultimately produce a world quite similar to that we now enjoy. We desire it now because we desire control: At least if the rats were artificial, perhaps we could choose their color and ensure their cleanliness.
