This is Unjust to Say

I have just eaten the plums that were just
in the icebox until I just ate them—

just the plums, not the off-season peaches
and nectarines we just bought from the stand
we just saw just recently on just our
last trip just up the highway just past the
mountains just beyond the county limits.

I just don’t understand how they can just
grow peaches just whenever they want like
they’re not just supposed to grow in summer
or just when they’re just in season and just
ready to be eaten just off the tree

like a mid afternoon snack that God just
made just for us just because he just did.
