Speckled orange like Sudafed
tablets ground over a cup of stewed carrots.
All the wedding cakes are moldy
and people are fingering
what remains of the beef.

Let them all in on a secret
best kept in a locked drawer
with bees for honey and info.
From the start: a mild pickle, and
from what I gather, a toast with milk.

Polish the liver. Bring organs
to a sheen; what the lion eats first
is up to the lion. The units
of measurement of the nutrients
in my body are now available for consumption.
