Oranges - Poem by Obinna Nwerem

Do you have something I can write about
I can no longer think of things to write about
Maybe I can write about oranges
Who would read about oranges
The juicy tingle taste
the gas smell of the pilled skin
Would you read about oranges
The rush of pain when hit in the eyes
With the poisonous venom
If I wrote about oranges....
well I wrote about oranges
Did you read it!

    pretty good.
    A long time ago, Leonard Cohen (famous Canadian poet, novelist, and great songwriter wrote,
    A person who eats meat
    Likes to sink his teeth into something.
    A vegetarian likes to sink
    His teeth into something else.
    If these words interest you
    For even a moment, you are lost.
    ***
    Yours doesn't confront the reader, though, it simply makes explicit the magic of conjuring that is involved in any poem. And I think some of the details you chose to include are quite fresh (like a good orange!) .
