It’s sticky and sweet.
And makes me sweat open-mouthed.
Fresh from the kitchen, the plate is piled with steaming rice
and pepper flake covered chicken.

Panting and chewing, we move the hot morsels over our tongues.
and send them down to warm our stomachs.
A long sip of beer puts out the flames.
We smile and repeat.
