Peapods and Peaches

peapods and peaches

mostly unrelated items in the store

isolated by aisles of disinterested parties

tasked with the chore of

finding one another in the perfect basket

teased with like items

and fickle shoppers

man-handled, abused, ignored

people disregarding them for potato chips

sugary sodas

and beer

do they even realize how awesome these things are?


and they don’t notice it until it is too late

the peas and peaches expire on the shelf

nobody wins
