Fighting the Fade to Night

losing the battle
fingers splayed
an orange struggling to compose itself
trying to pull in the sections
one by one
but failing
then trailing into the water
fingers through the pudding
furrows of ripples displaced
grasping
color waning faint
desparate bobbing
bobbing, again then
grey greying
deeper still
at last . . . finally fade
