Reminds me of my time at the Buddhist publishing company, making prayer wheels and collating pages and laminating thankas. If we dropped a page on the ground, we had to touch it to our foreheads before continuing; if it was damaged it went in a burn barrel.
“These flowers don’t belong to us, they belong to the gods.”
In fact... I came across this poem the other day while looking for Rilke:
Sugar Water In Winter, by Christie Towers
A bowl of rose water dreams itself empty
on the radiator: It’s December and we can
hardly afford the heat, our milk money
crinkling hungry over the cold counter
of our convenience store, the very last
of our cash for creamer, for pleasantries,
for cheap tea and cigarettes, for the barely-
there scent of roses burning softly. We trade
our hungers for hearth, for the clank and hiss
of warmth. Small fires, these, but even we,
in our clamorous poverty, demand pleasure:
steal sugar, our neighbor’s flowers, and never,
ever are caught thankless in better weather.

Very neat. I have a bus load of incense. But I always wondered how do I know if the fragrance is real or synthetic?
