Hostile Pasta

cooked pasta shells

Never trust a noodle

plucked from a boiling pot

Do not test it with your tongue

It’s always way too hot

Forget the wooden spoon

acting as buffer

the water tucked inside the shells

will surely make you suffer.

A belly full of pasta 

a wine-assisted grin

An ice cube pressed upon my lip

to soothe the blistered skin.
