Lemon Luscious/kenneth pobo

Intense, not shy, a lemon
makes cherries and peaches
seem like overly mellow people
who parse their words,
smiles like spilled sugar bags. 

And your yellow--what fun
to hold a small sun,
rub the roundness, put the skin
to your lips for a tart kiss.

Serve lemonade cold,
a big metal spoon to stir it,
charming green tumblers
that your grandmother had
the perfect place to pour into.

Some gossips say that lemons
are too extreme.  A water fall
is extreme, splashing over rocks,
diving down, happy
for a messy landing.
