"Eating Nasturtiums"

Eating Nasturtiums 

Peppery bloomskins make me salivate
––orange taste uncitrus––rambunctious unlike 
inedible ranunculus––zing surprising 
––reminiscent of salted dried plums from 
the Chinese market, La Cresta, in the sweat 
of Panama City––keeping the seed tucked 
into my inner cheek long after sucking the gnarly 
fruitmeat––only once downing the rocklike 
remnant while tying my shoes for the first time––
reassured that it would pass through me––
that we discard the wrong material––
we are made to be revised.
