Picture a post-modern Eve in her kitchen before the fall. With her fire escape door left ajar, wind hits her skin through the green curtains. It could be a jungle. It could be Eden. She's unclothed, so not to cover her work clothes in the stains of beets and collard. She chops fresh kale, blends wheatgrass and adds some ginger. She squeezes the pulp into a glass bowl. Hands holding the "nut mylk bag", she imagines she's milking a cow. Here collard and kale are the holy cows of India; instead of milking divine sustenance from the goddess Gomukha, she's milking that of the earth.
This morning her divine earth milk is peppered with cayenne.
