Caution: Hot

if I had a warning label

it would be ignored

by all but those

of milquetoast palates

you

with adventurous

appetites

believe

I am the perfect

condiment

complement

saucy dishes

in moderation

I warm hearts

cockles

linger tantalizing

on lips and uvula

spicing up

night

life

bite overzealous

my fire

sears ears

ignites integument

try to swallow

me

my essence

fire oil

impervious to water

will cauterize

your gall

torch

all control
