“Embolism” by Naomi Mulvihill
The oranges had taken two years to ripen on a tiny potted tree. My friend and her husband picked and peeled them. “We appreciated them,” he says, and I imagine how they ate the wedges, feeding some to their dog, Julie, who would have wagged her tail, prone to express any small joy.
I think of the oranges ripening synchronous with the clot, not so much through a system of secret signals as a mutual achievement—the blood’s lazy spooling and the fruit’s sweetening— of themselves, the way a chorus of bullfrogs coincides with the appearance of robber flies in June.

Lavender looking from a ledge
Across the rose ocean
Upon the yellow sphere, and Southern Hemisphere
Sapphire wash away the table
