Summer Pleasures This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   Peel back the skin,

Thick and swollen.

Dig in deep with oval thumbnails.

Watch the citrus spray on

sunburned, laughing faces.



Now,

Separate

One icy sliver with thin wrinkled skin,

And sink sharp teeth in deep.

Break away.



Taste the tart.

Taste the sweet.

Let the juice run.



And peel again.
