streets full of hues
never providing a dull moment
cravings are satisfied
once a few steps are taken

to the right
sunny mango
cut like a peony
at its peak

to the left
a watermelon
cut open
like a geode revealing all its secrets

look up to a large
glowing lemon
plastered onto a pleasant
plain blue background

look down
and notice fruit
past their ripe time
laying against the stone wall
with two rusty pesos
placed in its shadow
