Choke

Choke: the energy of the human throat embodied in wild fruit; it comes in a glut, which fills a jowl, and you  chew it with your cheeks full until you choke: a very bird-like thing to do. Birds too are completed by English chokes (wild pears) and Canadian choke cherries. And, I tell you, if you swallow a bird, feathers and all, the choke energy will be there too.
