Hungry for Another Poem?

I was hungry the other day, and so I wrote.


I sometimes wonder what would
happen if I gave tomorrow
back, and said, "no thanks,
I've had enough".

Would moments I have not yet
tasted, simply cease
to be? Or would they linger
somewhere, some time
else, and still be there, but not
with me?

Is it still lunch if
I haven't eaten, still
enough if I'm still

Appetites are so hard to predict.
