Apple – Amy Austen

Sitting there, the menace

of ripe roundness

it bursts with seeds

blood red and verdant,

Waiting, enticing

the smooth grains draw my eye.

 

Now swallowed

it sits sharp in poisoned stomach,
Juice straight to the vein

gums ache with action.

The ravaged heart lies alone

my core untouched

 

It browns as it slumbers

…I reach for a pear.
