I bring you a bowl of nuts

I come back later and eat

The ones you’ve dropped

In the transfer from hand to mouth

I devour everything you thought

You once wanted. It tastes fine

Just as the others

Probably did for you.

Peanuts and almonds

Salted cashews

All scattered and nervous

Under the eave of the bowl.

People who worry about me

Say you do it on purpose—

Some weird, fucked up way

Of sharing
