Pepper

Now pepper,

Now honey don’t,

what?

Don’t speak

Don’t sprinkle, infect, stimulate the senses.

The pungency

is an aroma used everyday in kitchens around the world.

From bliss to misery and back.

Now pepper.

Do not shake the black and white pepper.

Do not use the free medicinal drug.

Do not dust on that woman, the one less than,

the one not equal to,

the one who does not understand.

There are boundaries in the perimeter of the dinner plate.

Follow the rules.

But what would pepper be without its pepperiness.

You can’t take the spice out of pepper.

Now pepper, be pepper, and sprinkle on.
