Suet - De File
Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
They would put it in a cage, that unstable white square. I didn't like the way it felt on my fingertips. But the ritual of hanging it from the tree out front was thrilling. Later, we would sit by the large bay window and watch the space by floodlight. The deer came to eat the ivy. The flying squirrels soared diagonally from right to left. The cage became a shimmery beacon.

I think I read in Spy magazine that Oreos had suet in them at one time, too. Pretty sure that isn't the case any more, though. Mmm.

I like links like that, though I knew what suet was, but I find it amusing that the coloring of the linked word emphasizes it. So in my head, I heard "They would put it in a cage," making "it" sound sort of filthy, like a creature that didn't deserve a sex pronoun or name. Suet is pretty gross, to me, but I suppose not to the animals for whom it provides winter nourishment. And I did love to see them come for it.

Sometimes I feel like I'm in a cage that's dangling from some place high and in a highly visible location. If I'm really feeling morbid I envision meat-eating birds pecking out my eyes. Like in Pirates of the Carribbean or something.
