Sourball candies made with honey dew rind. Goat skin orthotics worn by a sockless Einstein, post-annus mirabilus but pre-annus horribilis. A paint roller slapping Rustoleum® onto a bank vault door to cover the fingerprints and gunfire residue. Honeysuckle and cherry blossoms steeped in rice wine vinegar. A polished Tamil urumi left on a stack of Bravo magazines, freshly-printed, with Suzanne Pleschette on the cover, ca. 1963. Gloucester fisherman rain slickers. Matunuck oyster shells in a publicly commissioned art project. Mulligatawny stew with lamb, Prince Edward Island mussels, arrowroot, and za’atar. A New Year’s Eve appetizer made from pineapple, cloves, and banana leaves. And formed into the shape of a miniature Revolutionary War soldier rallying his unit with a wicked whoop. A gift of anise from a niece visiting Nice. Container ship moorings.
