Death With Lime and Chives

Updated on March 27, 2017

When we repeat, when we repeat

our nightly ritual of JalapeƱo Salsa

making DOOM lose its power

seeing our death with Limes and Chives

whether it is the garlic that keeps our seat

upon our tongue a multi-layered Samba

terminal, without a cure

one of us will end up at old dives

when upon our soul hits the heavy chili

a memory of the divinity to chop

fine all the details a flavor, a spice

fresh from the ground far from death

your touch was not timid of our immortality

it seemed time provided the best crops

a lifetime to build trust and entice

the moment the spice takes away our breath

      An interesting and well-composed poem. Enjoyed seeing the Shakespeare book in the first image - it's his 400th anniversary this year. Not sure, but I imagine it will be celebrated on Shakespeare Day, today, 23rd April, I think.
