Spirit NOTES

The blacksmith, fresh from weeding out nettles and green foliage in the garden, returned to the forge to smelt molasses and star anise in a mighty kiln. The character of garden fences, freshly coated with creosote, wafted over crushed cocoa nibs with a bold authority. A good dousing with water created the heady spices of cloves and cinnamon as the blacksmith bundled earth-covered vegetables into a grain sack, along with green apples that had fallen onto the lawn. Large field mushrooms and chicken wings were prepared to smoke over hot flames, as a pomegranate was peeled with tar-covered fingers.
