The alembic was a vessel used in distillation, one of the most important processes in the ancient art of alchemy. These lyrical poems explore the prevalence of transformation in Nature as well as in the human realm. Alchemy is found in the creation of haute cuisine from raw ingredients, girlhood rites of passage, Mozart's suspicious death and, most of all, in the familiar otherness of flora and fauna.
