the smell of sweet lime

I am captured by this zone of purity.
A purity that does not allow in
the smell of sweet lime
that penetrates
pungent, putrid, reeking with obscenity
unless, of course,
you know of acquired taste.
And know also that the thing to eat
is not the fleshy juicy inside
but the coarse and bitter rind.
