“Ripe Fruit Falls” by Jaymie Thorne

scented with citrus, fresh from the tree

peel back the layers and discover me

the outside is bright but bitter at times

check out the sections beneath my rind

just lay them out neatly, all side by side

years have been spent learning to hide

with a little effort detect sweet and tart

give me a moment, i will open my heart

then spend more time, what will you see

scented with citrus, me free of the tree
