Don’t pick an orange

for its enormous size.

The fatness of the citrus

is not a sign of its sweetness.

I’ve seen large oranges

that are firm and juiceless

And I’ve eaten tiny ones

so sweet and sumptuous

you greedily bite the peels

and swallow the seeds

The sweetest oranges are colorblind

some dusky, others blondberry gold.

Once you remove the skin

all citruses fool the naked eye.
