Satsuma Smiles

Satsuma Smiles

‘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?
