CAST IRON TEMPO©

I woke up this morning

and realized …

I can get heated up

like a- B I G B O W L

of slowwwww cooked

thick and rich

tasty- red beans

topped off with

crunchy- small cut onions

fragrant- chopped cilantro

hot, spicy- freaking’ jalapeƱo

but I hope these words do not send you running to the medicine cabinet
and reach for the tums, before you have…

a fresh piece of my

hot and buttery- Cornbread

ON FIRE

Four in the morning
Risen to the rooster
Coffee and biscuits on the stove
This Texas poet ready to hit my 'New' Jersey roads
Mountains and kitchens to rise up with my burning desires
Work and rant until this freaky chef puts out the fires
