sense memory no. 1

suddenly the sweetness of some fruit
i can’t recall. 
memory’s mouth models peanut butter, avocado
spread thin onto toasted brown bread
and the saccharine spear implacable 
causes me to heave, breathe heavily 
in hopes of dislodging a pneumonic 
of seeds split and juice spit — an unmistakeable
