Sounds in the cheese kitchen…
breath in. and exhale.
keeps track of milk-soon-to-be-cheese.
metallic shriek: the straining spoon sweeps the inside of the stainless steel chevre pot.
wet plop of chevre shavings. laid in the colander. resting. straining.
clang of metal on metal: pots throw themselves from their drying rack. muttered expletives: torn from quiet thoughts.
screech of warped wood and metal: cheese press tightened. the liquid squish of feta in a headlock.
two wings buzz, hurl a small, dark body into the window pane.
