My Little Saturn Plum

This Saturn Plum
I had today
I tried for the first time

When you feel it,
It is soft and fuzzy
An irregular shape
In the palm of your hand
It just sits

With each inhale
It smells of
A ripe citrus fragrance
Not quite overwhelming
But still strong

It looked almost like
A fragile mutated miniature
Pumpkin all the colors
Blurred together
Orange pink and yellow

Although once I bit
Into it
I was completely
And utterly
DISAPPOINTED

The bland taste
Mulling over
In my mouth
How I wish
It tasted of
The sweet perfume
It smelled of

My Little Saturn Plum
