of course, 

the things we know are fleeting.

I’ve always understood that much.

and while inside I’ve held my breath, 

I’ve never lacked the oxygen to connect.

“I’ve skirted worse”

I assure myself-

I’ve lifted more from deeper lurches.

I know with every peach there is a pit

and in them,

lie our dormant curses.
