expiration date: sooner than you think

sometimes, i open the fridge
and stare at its contents,
the milk two days too old,
the pumpkin i've been meaning
to make something with.

sometimes, i stand at the window
and stare at the light turning yellow,
and then pink, and then blue

sometimes, i look at someone
and my eyes stay there,
their face pulling like a magnet

sometimes i hear a word,
or a phrase,
or a part of a sentence,

and i feel like i'm on 
the precipice of something,
wildly, hugely, completely important.

then it passes.
i close the fridge.
