Author's Notes

This poem came out of the July 2011 Muse Fusion. It was inspired by a prompt from LJ user haunted_blood. It can be sponsored for $5 or 5 Torn World credits.

Bitter herbs are simply those with a notable bitter flavor. They share typical properties including stimulation of the appetite, detoxification, and antimicrobial qualities. The Empire uses many medicinal herbs; these are just a few of the common ones.
