peaches 

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.
