Porcelain Waste Bowl Blues

Oranges like false lemon sunmachines
blurting out prose answers to poetic
questions is yellow the colour of

Albino oranges
turned insideoutshinedsunnysideup
pealing fleshy white like the blind eyes
of beggars squatting pavements outside Oxfam
on chill july mornings
is yellow the colour of happiness?

(Are bananas deceitful by nature?)

No way to tell by asking yellow
the colour of
the fruit of
the feeling of
positive responses
to questions unasked
and unasked for out of fading (incandecent) loneliness
