I would really appreciate it if someone could help me with some key quotes.
as hard as a knot, simile
For what poem/story
Rat grey fungus glutting on our cache
all the senses like:
Taste: its flesh was sweet like thickened wine
touch: peppered with thorn pricks, our palms sticky as bluebeards
smell: then all the lovely canfulls smelt of rot
sound: until the tinkling bottoms...
sight: among others...hard as a knot
