OPTIONAL POETRY

In this brown neglect of a garden
peppers gleam under
a sheen of wax,

in warm sunset shades
of orange, fuchsia, red–

resistant, tropical, small
in the hand

and wickedly spicy,
no rat would touch them,

hot bellicosity
a useful trait for surviving
out of season,

the counterpart
to too much vibrancy,
a swift cure for curiosoity,

as not all
questions are
benign.
