What is orange?

Orange is the morning tickling your feet.
Orange is night vision.
Orange is the toe of Christmas.
Orange is a snowman’s nostril, a naked callipo.
Orange is red and yellow
setting their differences aside.
Orange is Wait, no need to rush off.
Orange is halftime.
Orange is condensation down a pint glass. Orange is a Thursday firework.
Orange is the flame of truth.
Orange is the peeling of an old skin,
a trusting reveal of the soft bits.
