‘I won’t eat it, it tastes yucky
and the white bits look like dead skin.
Sometimes when I bite into them
the juice gets on my clothes
and the taste makes me scrunch my face up.’ –
but as soon as each half-moon segment
is peeled to perfection, then placed
on my rainbow plastic party plate,
artistically displayed in the shape of an upturned face,
who wouldn’t want to eat a piece of happiness?
