Unpeel the Orange

Unpeel the orange,
loosen the albedo,
separate the segments,
clean off the pith,
pop the vesicles,
drink the juice,
plant the seeds
where there is sun,
water the sprouts,
fertilize the roots,
savor the scent
of the white blossoms,
warm the fruit,
pick, repeat.

Pile of Orange Rind
