i bought an orange, but it was a grapefruit. i don't like grapefruit and the bitterness is still clinging to my tongue.

i bought it last night, it was a big orange, it developed in my mind, anticipation. it would be a tasty orange,

but it was a grapefruit. opening it just now the bitterness, a surprise. i tried eating it, tried to close my eyes and pretend that it tasted like the orange that i had imagined.

i am not bitter, only my tongue is bitter. my beautiful orange now sits in the bottom of the wastebasket.

i will remember this orange more than i remember most.
