I love his eyes

-not only the hazel innocence

That I swooned over when we first met

But their ability to peel the world

Layer by layer

Like a tangerine

Clawing and peeling the tough outer skin,

Breathing in the fragrant oils from it’s pores

And separating the wrapped segments

He examines them…

                   ‘What blood flows through these veins?’

He wonders

Before removing each foggy veil

                   Revealing the world’s nakedness

Wet with vulnerability

The juices run down his tidy fingers
