How would I embroider a tangerine? 

It starts with a teasing question.

Would I first cut it in half and poke through the flesh?

Or, is it like taxidermy: I turn the tangerine — as the mouse — inside-out?

I practice until I can peel the skin off in one piece. I chew it over some more.

Could I laser-cut a guide for the stitches or do I follow its natural pores?

Do I use a blanket stitch?

Unable to sleep, I grab the fruit bowl.

There’s always a roadblock — a missing tool or piece; a workaround.

Wasted fruit.

I return to bed, sticky; waiting for the next puzzle.
