orange peels

a little piece broke off and has landed on the floor underneath my desk
where it will dry up and disintegrate into a million micro bursts of orange-ness.
can you imagine how long that would take?
almost as long as the furthest horizon of my patience, except that, that, is an intangible amount of time to wait to disintegrate.
if I was the bit of orange peel I would head north, roll over the bathroom tile and out the door, where the world awaits
but I am not an orange peel, and who knows what it will do
