The Mango Fruit

On a slender branch
Suspended from a thread of jade
Is the irradiating splendor of a bulb
Perched on the splendorous effulgence
Of a pandol of nature
As subtle bursts of light emit
From the visage of a harlequin pellicle
Harboring a concoction of taste
An entombed tanginess that seeps
From her succulent medulla
An infused juvenile acidity
That resurrects the esurient tongue
If sourness is her royal scepter
Edulcorated sweetness is her crown
As she bequeaths on man
Sweet succulent morsels of yellow candy
A nepenthe for the ills of man
As he transcends his capitulations and fears
To the sweet victory that taste bestows
Crypted within the heavenly bite
Of a mango fruit
