Eating an Orange

Today we have a guest post from Elliot Anderson!

A fine aromatic mist sprays
from the leathery orange sphere,
as irregular shapes are peeled from it.
With its thick skin removed,
it is pulled apart
along the natural divisions
radiating from its poles.
First in half, then into each section
filled with membraned droplets
of citrus juice.

One by one, they are placed in the mouth
and chewed, releasing the tangy juice.
The pulp is chewed longer,
then swallowed.
