in a coffee shop with an orange

can I make you see the whole world in an orange?
hold it slowly
find ecstasy in its form.

let the juice run through your fingers
the scent a strong perfume
bite and taste it
even the bitter peel on your tongue

be consumed

imagine every moment an orange.
holding your attention
quickening your senses
spicing your fingers
with thick, sweet residue

let it all enchant you.
the moment
the orange
the ecstasy of everything

in it
you're alive
you've found perfection
