Light you can eat!

and like all sweetness best leavened by a tang

of acid

the pucker in the kiss

mwah honey, you are so bad

it makes me feel good

cereal is for kids

eggs for truckers

bacon for farmers

toast for grannies

but oranges

are for lovers

no matter how carefully you undress them

it’s always a bit messy

their scent on your fingers

for hours afterwards
