peachesLeft on the board
as a gift unwanted
I imagine a head in here
wrapped and folded over
cauterized at the neck
to save from ruining the bag
which is not of butcher’s paper
or waxed on the inside at all
(but instead it may be a Friday
the week’s end and the peaches
that were hard before are now
just right and ripe almost rotting
ready for your eating).
