i had a warm orange.

as i chewed, the juice

felt warmer, like acid

dripping down my throat ;

cleansing, burning.

~

the moon was full

and it was on fire.

it smiled at me

mockingly, and i kept

chewing on the orange

~

until i could feel my

stomach melt and squeeze

like it does when i am hungry,

except i was feeding it

so i did not understand why …

~

the orange is done and

so am i, but i keep

going back to grab the moon.

isn’t it silly of me to forget that

it burns me every time ?
