One of the many pieces of aural connective tissue found on One Man’s Trash, “A Good Stalk” could refer to hunting or to the support mechanism of a plant. But the uneasy feedback combined with what sounds like the deadwax of a vinyl record seems to evoke the image of sinister figure moving quickly and angrily down a dark, foggy street.

Or, it could be about rhubarb.
