Ooooooohhhh I love a nice, soft peach orangish, yellowish like a sunset juicy as a piece of sugary gum (the kind I ate before braces) Yeah, I love a nice, soft peach feels round like a softball a little furry like it’s alive I collect those tough pits inside full of creases and lines wise pits I’m gonna bury that pit and hope it grows me a tree.
