Sasquatch Summer Natural Sausage

What is Sasquatch Summer Natural Sausage?

Let me answer you in the voice of a boy, barefoot and free, running through the green cover lit with drops of burning, dazzling gold, crashing through the brush, splashing in the creek, flying through the trees, scratched and natural with kind summer bruises. Stark naked, actually. Stained with berries and mud and mischief. Howling.

What Makes Sasquatch Summer Natural Sausage Special?

Tan and lean from swimming in the creek, we’d laze about with nothing to do but dares. We’d discover new treasures on our own. Nature was our laboratory. We’d pull back a leaf to answer the hum of a sweet buzzing sound. The hive was our discovery, dripping with luscious honey. I don’t know if it was a dare or just plain hunger of not having eaten the night before, but our rocks felled the hive and we ate the honey with stung and swollen fingers and lips.

That night we lay under the stars, the granite sheen of the galaxy as bright and clear as the rocks in the creek, the bees stingers still singing in our veins, our breathing light and even, tears of pain and joy, rapt at the miracle of the universe. Where the hell were our parents?

Where can I get Sasquatch Summer Natural Sausage?

Sometimes I dream of the dark, cool cupboard in our last house, the one that didn’t have a road or windows or water, hidden by the tall, tall grass. It was like our clubhouse, only all the time. We didn’t pay any rent, just stayed there until Mr. Wonder came back, came back with bags of groceries, snacks and those men, those dirty, cussing men. Mommy only had the one summery dress that had looked so special on her thin shoulders and told us we were going to have another brother or sister again, for real this time, and it was going to be special because an angel and some buttons of mescal had told her so.

But first I had to find it. I had to go find it out in the dark where Daddy had buried it. I had to dig it with my hands.

Sasquatch Summer Natural Sausage is available wherever natural foods are sold.
