Deal


"Oranges are expensive all around this year."


When the fruit seller said this,
I quietly accepted his price.

No, I am not so naive
That I wasn't infected
By a glimmer of suspicion.

But my apprehension about being duped was negligible
When faced with the fear

Of losing my ability to trust.
