The Sort of Thing Claypot Dreamstance Often Says When He's Sorting His Recyclables

Peel off oval orchard sticker, the one that says it’s a product of nature. Twist stem three four five times until it snaps off. Hold apple under tap water for a few seconds, giving it a temporary translucent coat. Dry it on a dish towel. Decide you don’t want to eat it after all. Leave it on the table for a few days until it gets too soft for your taste. Throw it out on the front lawn. Watch crows beak-stab it for several days. See it dissolve into the lawn. Turn attention to the banana in the fruit bowl.


Very evocative! And I think I remember this actually happening a time or two.
