father-in-law and son

I like watching him peel an orange

One skin

That’s all

If he knows you know

He will let you watch

If he knows you don’t know

There will, be a surprise to go with that juicy orb

The skin will be your to keep

It will last as long as he wishes

The perfect gift and remembrance

Fleeting and degradable 

Forever has changed how I eat an orange
