Orange-fruit

        For Ang (Angie)

If I write of orange, the fruit,
   And know there are no rhymes
For that cursed word, the poet’s bane,
   I know frustration’s times.

When of color orange I write,
   The problem still occurs.
It’s irritating to a bard,
   Like sitting on some burrs.

And so you’ll notice my neat trick
   Above, I put the orange
Within the line, not at the end –
   Except when it’s for Ang.
