orange peel

clothing like an orange peel

contains me

it’s rough

regular exterior

covers the essence of my presence

where ancient rivers flow


with flickering pinks, blues and violets

a single button opened

or stocking removed

just as thumb nail against orange navel

releases a bursting warning

of the overwhelming fragrance

coming to tempt

the tongue of time

with deeper force comes deeper pleasure

as paler flesh reveals

the promise

of enraptured sustenance


begging the question

will you peel me


and reveal me

to your pressure

with pleasure

knowing before you get here

you will return here

i will nourish and protect you

like vitamin c against the cold
