a month mostly gone--sausages in the trees--the carcasses of rabbits

January is the month that pineapples come back in season, the month for making sausages and hanging them in the branches of trees; it is the month when the days get noticeably longer and the people get noticeably nicer; and it is the month when suddenly the rabbit sellers appear, pulling piles of half-skinned carcasses in wooden carts through the city and lifting the bloody bodies with bloody hands to hawk them at the endless passers-by.

The scene of hawkers carrying the dead rabbits will make me upset if I see it, however I know I will fall in love with the taste if I start eating them.
