a slight and tentative treatment of the essentials

clothesline: underrated thing for which sunlight only is the trick

greylag: the goose that flies behind the others

tooth: a transmitter of flavor and pain

funk: the sad goo at the bottom of a frame of mind

vestigial: the smallest bone in memory's body

malaprop: "tonight i'm going to drink myself to bolivia."

bedridden: bottom living fishes are either flat or else they lie permanently on one side

time: a city of immense clocks and rusted flutes

l'essence: "it's the idea of gas that people are paying for."
