i cannot attach to anything in present time.

a poem about how readily i will let go.

peter piper picked a peck of pickled peppers,

but i still cannot pull ripe blackberries from their stems

without hooking my pointer finger on a protruding thorn.

once, i reached for an apple in a field of orchard trees
