The sun is rising and the day begins

the teeth snap the skin with a pop

a spray of sweet juice explodes in my mouth

and the tongue pulls flecks of fruit

and chomp away at the chunk bitten

And leaving the lips tart and sticky

the slight burn of sharp juice

tingles on the inside of the cheeks

and leaves me wide awake
