from The "Unfinished"

"picture a person who one day in a fit of idleness decides to make a pomander like the one that granny used to have around the house in old New England and so he takes an orange and sticks a lot of cloves in it and then he looks at it and realizes that he's killed the orange, his favorite which came from the Malay Archipelago and was even loved in Ancient China, and he quickly pulls out all the cloves, but its too late! Orange is lying bleeding in my hand!"
