Incidental

the
sandwiches
i packed today
are gritty
but not on purpose
like you probably
think

i swear
i didn’t mean
to do you dirty

i swear
i didn’t plan
chipped peanuts
to harbor red
raspberry seeds
like sand between
your teeth

like sand
wedged between
sliced bread
at the beach
we take
our licks
we take our licks

it’s all
incidental —
so swallow
