Two Basket Cases

This from a long 2006 missive to my friend Willard:

The horn basket [cornucopia] is emptied and usually in its emptying it does not suffer damage. The container subject to dehiscence loses its capacity to act as a container in the same fashion. From the cornucopia I can take the bean pods, once the beans are shelled, the material from the pods only becomes pod-like again after a long detour process involving a route that may travel through animal feed on its way to compost.

Humanist 20.078 minding the gap
Now alongside some stray bit:
the quality of the reading depends on the quality of the basket
Or the precision of the pod.

And so for day 1382
