Oh my little
chicorita
Sizzling
siestas
singing
jalapeño
hot
Little
chicorita
rattling
bones

Hard case
caffeine
boneheads
waking
Nasty
slumbers
Daylight’s
timeless
quest
simply
being present

Grist
Grind
Greatest
taste
I ever
found
Whetting
appetites
roasted over
slow
smouldering
coals

Did I slice
this stone
Breaking
little
chicorita?
Grinding her
to dust
only to
sate
my own
shallow
tastings

So sorry
lady chic
my little
chicorita
Some things
they grow
more
urgent
