what if we thought of the earth as an orange – limounaid

what if we thought of the earth as an orange

with layers that we peel back just to get something

Sweet

Would we be more delicate with her?

Each piece, savored

Picking our teeth from all the pith

the earth’s bark

Sour, sweet, bitter, never quite ever neat

we will wash our hands once we have finished with her and hope that there’s a towel to dry off our fingers

what if we thought of the earth as an orange

would we treat her differently?

would we grow her on subsidies, pick her tree clean

would we compensate the grower

Or allow such cooperative charity

what if we thought of the earth as an orange

preserving her core

Alleviate her seeds

Guide endowments greater than every / any thing that shall be

she may not be an orange but

She

Sure

Is

Sweet
