honey garlic chicken wings

by Chris Sorrenti

one of man’s greatest achievements
up there with the wheel
wright brothers and
sliced wonder bread

not too hot
not too tame
with only this, that, and a few other things
mixed in
to give it that special tang

can eat a whole box of them on my own
with a jug of milk
and fresh loaf of egg bread

when it comes to food
that’s how I was raised

no offence to those who enjoy
the sting of curry and jalapeño
I realize an acquired taste
but for me no fun
burned lips and tongue

just give me those honey garlic chicken wings
with a rack of barbecued ribs
mixed in for good measure

Speaking my language. Can never have enough wings...Garlic Parmesan is my flavor of choice, and is now what I crave.

Chicken wings seem to inspire a passionate following - you are no exception, Chris. Thanks for this.
