Miller’s knot, bag knot. I could have been
a cut-up. Might collection
turn profession: occasional nisbit, carting
jars of filberts. I never found
the throwing knives. They corroded;
how smoked meat
turns the color of mahogany. Mahogany
is key. To keep without
cold, try eggs in water-glass. To keep
a pork blood from clot, use salt.
A vinegar for duck. Donkeys are good
watch animals but kill calves.
Safely handle mature bulls only by a ring.
Milk for the fining wines; tannins,
restoration. A carboy when you think
of me and fret the scud. I carry
isinglass in my sack. I tie the neck to whip:
opposing grief knot, preventing fray.
