The philosopher's stone mantles citron. Lungs dilate, pulse sharpens. An orange blouse increases milk production. Greek prostitutes wore orange to draw the body's passion; Tibetan monks wear saffron to overcome it. Carrots started purple, then turned white, then yellow, before ending orange. Setting sun, rising moon. New dreams tempt. You might bite.
