If Looks Could Cook...

by Pete Lee

as your side
of the discussion
grows more heated
I notice your hands
trace popcorn arcs
through the air
your chin goes buttery
and melts down your neck
while your tongue
flitters about
frightened parakeet
in the burning
cage of your mouth
and your eyes
spit like hot dogs
