Orange questions I have

Orange questions I have/ They crunch

so loud I can’t hear beyond / the crisp mouthfuls

How at twenty four weeks/ the fetus / with inner ear grown full

hears only the mother’s heart: /Life in a single sound/ Tapping

Yes, I remember this/ The day the sound/ breaks open

And light pours in/ Comes back to me now

(Custom-fitted for blogger. Off blogger, imagine

spaces where there are dashes)
