An Orange is Orange

It maddened him.

The completely arbitrary assignment of names.
He saw the colors and that’s what they were.
Clean cut, simple and plain.

On his kitchen tabled rested a basket full of
rounded reds, little circle purples,
swelled yellows, and orange orbs.

Spiky browns with green hats, hairy browns,
and big oval greens were too
tropical for this season.
