It is slaking nuncheon out of some thing's brain pan.

slaking thirst

drinking from a skull, supposedly a Viking custom
cf Hamlet's Yorick, LeFanu's prologue


nuncheon: light refreshment of liquor

Meseemeth a dragonsman.

he seems to me to be?
'Me' = narrator?

FW1: "dragon man"
Penguin typo: "man He"

dragoman: interpreter, in Arabic-, Persian- and Turkish-speaking countries
so, 'I need an interpreter (constable Sackerson)'?

He is almonthst on the kief fief by here,

"He" = the interpreter?

all month (months)

phrase on the qui vive: on the look-out

kief (Afrikaans) = great (also ganja)
Keith? Kiev? chief?

fief: an estate in land (Vico discusses fiefs in Roman history)

is Comestipple Sacksun,

comestible: article of food
slang tipple: strong liquor

so "nuncheon" = alcoholic tipple, here?

Sackerson (Elizabethan bear)
obsolete sack: a type of Spanish wine

(which is more Wakean: we already know the caveman's name, and he's a policeman, or a 3rd party translator is involved?)

be it junipery or febrewery, marracks or alebrill

no matter the month, he's drinking

gin contains juniper
juniper berry
January (months)


arrack: Eastern liquor

Italian brillo: drunk, tipsy

or the ramping riots of pouriose and froriose.

rampaging, escalating

pouring drinks
pouring rain

French pluviôse: fifth (mid-winter, January 20 to February 18/19) month of French Revolutionary calendar (French pluvieux: rainy) (months)

German fror: froze

French frimaire: third (late-autumn, November 21 to December 20) month of French Revolutionary calendar (French frimas: hoar-frost, rime) (months)
