Jala Wahid: Akh Milk Bile Threat

Jala Wahid: Akh Milk Bile Threat FAD Magazine

The intestines, cut out with adamant and thrown from warm belly to the tomb-cold steel tray were left out for a long time, barely shaded. The tray became warmer than the beast’s blood, black foam surrounded the pellucid flesh and in it grew a soupy vapour. At first it touched on the putrid matter, swathed in decrepit gown, from there it departed silently and split open above a congealed pool of oil, akh,the poisonous sound of a bezoar dropping into
fuscous liquor. Text by Thea Smith
