Pepper Poem

A Cajun capsicum creates a hot

Constriction in my chest. Thin blood will flush

My pallid face and my heart will begin

To race within the tightening bands. Again

I’ve sought the pyrrhic pod’s rich plasmic rush.

Cayenne’s conflagrant charm has me besot.

Enticed by this, I’m drawn against my will;

Picante sirens sing me back anew

And set afire my belly. Magma heat

Ignites sweet pain I hate but know is meet;

Yet mild and peaceful life I too eschew,

For I should miss the pepper’s fiery thrill.

Would lusty Pan with silent pipes just sit

While spiced cabrito turns above the pit?
