Plot summary

Harold Parkette hires "Pastoral Greenery and Outdoor Services Inc." to cut his lawn. Conversing with the serviceman who arrives to do the job, Parkette is unsettled to hear him use the expression, "by Circe." The lawnmower man eventually deploys an "aged red power mower" which autonomously mows the lawn while he crawls in its trail on all fours, naked, devouring the grass. The lawnmower then chases after a mole, chopping it up, before returning to its track. The lawnmower man eats the shredded mole. It emerges that the lawnmower man is working for the god Pan. At this point, Parkette tries to call the police. The lawnmower man notices this, and directs the mower into the house, chewing up the carpet and a coffee table. Parkette tries to escape, but the mower catches up with him on the lawn and runs him over like the mole earlier. The story ends as the police discover Parkette's entrails behind the house in a birdbath. Circe, a painting by John William Waterhouse. ... Pan (Greek , genitive ) is the Greek god of shepherds and flocks, of mountain wilds, hunting and rustic music: paein means to pasture. ...
