ambergris coffee


Michael of Wondermongery
sent me ambergris spray

Physeter macrocephalusfrom La via del Profumo

after I'd seen ambergris
in the Whale Museum

in Rancho Palos Verdes, California
I could finally smell ambergris

and spritz some

into a cup of coffee
and drink it
and it was delicious
inspired by a perfumer
who soon you will read more of ... here
