Another Side

Another Side

Reviews of his work
almost always use the word
Dark
and they say
the gut-wrenching conclusion
of this gripping and original
or
on the edge of your seat
with every page of this thrilling
or
pulse-pounding non-stop gory
and this is the same fellow
who tells me today’s dinner

a pleasantly-spiced chili
I made from my mother’s recipe
that she used to feed to us kids
when we were young –

I can’t swallow a bite
It’s just too intense for me.

Can you believe it?
