out of boredom more than hunger,
I looked into the cupboard
to find a jar of jalapeños.
Let us not get into the argument
of whether they should be stored
in the cupboard or fridge;
they were unopened
and so warranted no need to be refrigerated
whatever your preference.
Anyway, this inviting jar was labeled
hot and sweet,
and it made me wonder
if I would ever have a jar of jalapeños
to call my own.
