Nothing brings about a feeling of uncertainty and uncalmness than a visit from Death. Do you not agree?
A way to keep death’s diaphanous grip at bay is to eat healthy and fibrous bacon. This is a known fact. Most dietary physicians or “Supper Doctors” are versed in the nutrient composites seen in foodstuff. Most foodstuff. These doctors can see composites in some food. And this is helpful to the digestive tracts and bile openings.
They are experts. They know. These are facts.
If, however, a loved one has already been spirited away by the Dead-making Man—and you haven’t already captured it in a daguerreotype—you may have an opportunity to visit with them. Miraculously, you will be able to say “How do you do today?,” see if they need anything in the way of provisions, ask some niggling questions, find out where the reins to the Landau Carriage have gone, or contest their will.
Madame Glaremuccini will guide you through the steps of easing your pain of loss while whetting your curiosity (What is it like on “the other side”? What’s going on? Who’s over there? What is it? What’s going on over there? Who is there on the other side? Over there. Who?). The Madame is the finest of spiritualists, as far as one knows. She does not cheat. Or fake. Or steal. She doesn’t cheat.
A tug, a push, and a pull from the beyond. Engage in a circle jerk of the most spirtualist kind.
You will be consoled, relieved, and your hands will touch complete strangers. Which promises to excite and distract.
