April 8

With that snout
it’s clear that you
were born to root.
Even three feet
underground, just
above where the
dead rest, you
can smell truffles.
The speed with
which you dig
them out has led
some hunters
to use truffle dogs,
instead, owing to
the fact that dogs
don’t really like
truffles and pigs
have been known
to eat too many
fungi in the field.
Still, it’s probably
true that your
particular taste for
truffles leads to a
more devoted beast.
