“When we take the magic milk from the tree, we can see things. We see ghosts all over. When I see the ghosts it helps me do the job, because I see the ghosts. I don’t see the red meat leaking red on the ground. All I see are the ghosts that walk in the forest. There are many, many ghosts here, You wouldn’t believe. Too many ghosts. Even when I sleep, I see ghosts inside my head.”
