no mash, laid on stuffing. i tasted it, reflected

on the day. natural history musem taxidermy.

two floors of victorian cabinets. dust & formaldehyde .

fish in bottles.i went to see some beetles you know

all pinned and tiny labelled. all gone for cleaning.

that evening at dinner he pulled my leg over labelling

& asked me where i shopped. did mash really depress?

i left the stuffing.
