Zorro as Pizza Cutter


Zorro likes Friday nights. That’s when we order 2 medium half pepperoni half
Canadian bacon pizzas from The Deli News. We usually get hand-tossed, but
Zorro prefers pan. He likes it extra cheesy. He likes the challenge of slicing the
pizza into perfectly sized portions, because Zorro’s all about equality. He likes
how the steam rises from the inside like piping entrails. How the meat sur-
renders to the edge of his blade like fresh flesh. How sometimes, the sauce
squirts onto his lapel like drops of blood dripping from the tip of his rapier.
