Orange

Of late I am drawn to
the color orange
It was not always so
but now I seek out orange that
word that rhymes with almost no words
in shirts pants food art
It is quite curious this
love affair
Nearby a very slow moving
stream fills a shallow pond
with an iron rich orange
mixed slush
that don’t tell anyone
I give more than
a passing thought
to stripping and
smearing it all
over my body
