A Bite of Orange

March 12, 2008

Orange is
The color that is also a smell
And a taste and a globe
And a fruit.
Fleshy and cupped in my hand,
It fits.
I dig my nail in deep
To get a hold on smooth curves that slip
Purposefully I tear, detach, split, rip, separate,
Pull the skin from the essence within
To unearth
Juice and sweetness.
