• Bring no milk into a house where mammals are eaten. Bring no milk into a house where children have died. Bring no milk into a house that is just a house.
• Milk outside a body sours itself. You may postpone but not prevent this. Acknowledge the transience of milk and those who drink it. Find comfort in impermanence.
• Pour the milk into a clear, glass bottle. Raise the bottle to eye-level, and notice the distinction between blankness and clarity. Choose.
• Treat the milk as you would a feverish daughter or son. Show it your favorite coldness. Stay up all night if necessary. Discourage morbid thoughts.
• Trap the milk with rubber or cork. Never open the bottle unless you intend to pour something out.
