Note: I'm not a big fan of writing poetry. For some reason, it doesn't really click. However, I'm always down to challenge my brain in thinking and writing in new ways. So here is an ode to chillies.
Spiciness of pecoroni
Subtlety of jalapeno
The bite of green pepper
And a dash of red flakes
My soup comes together
On this fateful, fever induced day
Mom asks me, "What else does the soup need?"
I say, "More chillies please."
