The Guide has this to say about Mexican pizza made by Turkish Kurds:
(Almost) spicy.

Our spines are fused now
and you
say I don’t want to.
You can’t go back, not with daggers in your mouth

spit them out.

I dream of home

The hostel was chrome-scaled with a dying grin
Cheshire and head-splitting
hearts and spades carved in its teeth.
