This is Arizona. Some like tears-streaming, croaking-voice, sweat-pouring spicy food. Not me. I like heat in my food but not the burning inferno of Dante.

Out of curiousity, how do you like your food? A) Mild? B) Hot enough to make you perk up and notice? C) The flames of hell?


I wrote this one when I first started this blog but decided to change the image and the last line.  Here is the original:

his face scrunches up
why do people want to sweat
with each bite they take

Speaking of changing, I did a photo manipulation of my photograph. The original was a blackberry lemonade at Zin’s I posted on Cactus Catz May 2018.

I also put this senryu up on Instagram today @cactus_haiku if you’re into IG.
