Day 7: April Poem-a-Day

Prompt: Write a self-portrait poem

I guess I look like a mango
A mango which curious hands squeezed
and left dimples upon
A mango with spots and scars on the skin
and ripe, pulpy flesh around the seed
A green red brown mango
but really just rather orange-y yellow
and sweet
I’m sweet!
Laying under tropical trees
