The Clementine’s box reads,
“Natures sweet temptation.”
The copy writer is correct.
There is irrepressible temptation when looking at a Clementine.
It is organic,
Sweet and juicy.
Carefully pull back the protective outer skin,
Reveal its tender, sweet flesh.
Admire the split between its juicy halves,
Spread the fruit gently apart using the nimble pads of your fingers.
Consume at your leisure, take your time.
Enjoy the tartness, the sweetness, the bursts of flavor.
Feel the edges with your tongue,
the firm tips with your lips.
Messy and sticky is a part of the game.
You can always lick your fingers off and continue.
