Who hides the flavour in an orange slice?
Not the growers cooperative —
Planning and managing the crop day by day,
Not the truckers —
Bringing the produce from the groves far away,
Not the marketing men —
Working to tell us what folks like today,
And certainly not me.
But I take one from a basket full,
Peel off the fiery coat and taste the fiery core,
And discover a little universe, never touched before
In the tiniest vesicle.
