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.
