The orange bark of the Christmas tree trunk.An innocent opossums orange nose sharing an omen. Fruit in a bag care package, including an orange. Put away the overnight bag an pull the emergency switch.The opossum warns "Don't become road kill, like my uncle."So I fade to Orange, the new black.
Fade to black, the new orange?
