Cactus Juice #Haiku #Poetry

A haiku written by Lee Sonogan

Why all runners should be drinking cactus juice

In Mexico, when we want to speak deep secrets, we drink pulgue together. It is a drink made from the cactus plant, and when you take the bottle from your mouth, it leaves a string behind, between the mouth and the bottle, like a spider’s web. It shows that the truth sticks inside. – Alejandro Jodorowsky

Cactoid mucilage,

Greengrocery opuntia,

Infusion fuselage.

The walls were wet and sticky, and peach juice was dripping from the ceiling. James opened his mouth and caught some of it on his tongue. It tasted delicious. – Roald Dahl
