Mandarin Orange

Will any of us remember today

Five years from now? 

I worked all day and then visited 

The post office. 

The sun was out and I went for a walk. 

Was the sun out for others? 

I thought about how 

My reality seems distant. 

Maybe I'm still 

Not used to all of the new things.

For lunch, I had a protein shake and 

A mandarin orange. 

That was all and it was okay. 

Will any of us remember today 

Ten years from now? 

Does anyone remember

All of the little things we do? 

I still have an intense cough—

The most memorable part of my day. 

I don't think I drank enough water.
