mango 2016


Peeling a mango is simple.
Doing that one thing, now
Is simple, and it is good.
So as I peel a mango
I anticipate
Its sweet tartness
And feel my saliva
Prepare itself
For the first bite.
And I am fully
With this mango
In this moment.
I am not thinking
About my health
Or about problems
With my family
Or about my next poem.
Only the mango
This mango
In this mango moment
