New one, a little rough

Salty flek, uneven, speckled surface,
ground or chopped,
squeezed like Christmas relative then spread as butter,
baked in cake or cookie

you waited there,
the assassin among bean thread,
hidden in sauce,
curry or cabbage your camouflage,
silent killer,

she knew you only then,
her purchase for air a credit card canceled,
a plastic wedge only, good for floss or jimmy.

my mistake,
I missed your malevolent air,
the semi-sentient path you trod, little peanut,
ubiquitous seed.

you hid in plain view,
ingredient to gods, herd-thinning nonesuch,
honeyed companion.
