Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce by Alice-Catherine Jennings
(a found poem based on a recipe by Chef Eric Simeon of Grace Restaurant in Portland, Maine)
Ghost peppers are hot,
the hottest in the world.
(This is a scientific fact.)
When you cook them
Use tongs, gloves
& do not inhale
The recipe is simple:
salt & apple cider
Those in need of an elephant repellent
