the leaves of the tree

outside my bedroom window are turning yellow, ravenous yellow!teach me how to boogie, teach me, teach me how to boogie (to peruvian cumbia) so im reading muriel barbery’s new book in spanish; im not sure if it’s been published in english yet. anyways, it’s called gourmet rhapsody and i love it. the narrator describes sushi as (in my translation): “the texture is like velvet dust in the confines of chilled silk…it conserves a density of milk that the clouds can only dream of” and goes on describe the flavor of salmon and octopus, etc. i miss fish and the genius primitive of eating raw foods.
