Orangentrophy - a Found Poem

Mummy can peel an orange in one go,
a giant puzzle piece that fits together with itself.
Sometimes she can make a double helix
or a lotus flower.
Lily met a Mexican who used to steal
oranges from the Chinese cemetary.
Can a Mexican be haunted by a Chinese ghost?
I pictured him, hurdling
over tombstones and crouching
behind shrubs, and then going home
with bulging pockets
to jumping children who would
shred the orange peel into confetti.
