Abstract

A R T H U R S Z E labrador tea Labrador leaves in a jar with a kerchief lid release an arctic aroma when simmered on a stove. Yesterday when fire broke out in the bosque, the air had the stench of cauliflower in a steamer when water has evaporated and the pot scalds. Although Apache plume, along with clusters of western peppergrass, makes fragrant the wash, owls that frequent the hole high up the bank of the arroyo have already come and gone. Yesterday, though honey locust leaves shimmered in a gust, I marveled no wasp nest had yet formed under the porch. Repotting a spathiphyllum, then uncoiling a hose, I suddenly hear surf through open slats of a door. Sprinklers come on in the dark; a yellow slug crawls on a rainslicked banana leaf; as the mind flits, imbibes, leaves clothed underneath with rusty hairs suffuse a boreal light glistening on tidal pools. overleaf Poo Sing Tong Herbal Store, Honolulu, 1917.
