MAGPIE...Prompt #117

                                                         The Meal/ 1891/ Paul Gauguin

Thank you Tess, for this tasty Magpie Tales....

RECIPE/ Enchiladas For Lunch

Chop an onion,
let the tears flow,
place the cilantro to the side.

I mean garlic,
when I say garlic,
let it perform
its breathless way.

Shake that Salsa Verde
as if you're doing the cha-cha.
Then tear a chicken
to smithereens,
but first let it cool its bones.

Roll that tortilla
over and back,
stuff it
with the kitchen sink.

Fill it chock full,
of red chili flakes,
kiss that chicken good-bye,
then top it all
with a gooey queso,
make sure that
it's very fresco.

Turn the heat to soaring.
Lick a lime,
it could be your last.
Let the devil
pass the pizzazz.

I think the best line is "but first let it cool its bones."
