forbidden fruit

a rotting apple

lies upon october earth

having fallen not too far

 

never will she be

something satisfying

although perhaps she once

was juicy

 

prior to the bruise

prior to the trauma

prior to the fall

 

promise

turned to shame

tossed aside as worthless

 

with neither man nor beast

willing to take pleasure in consuming her

had she purpose

for becoming fruit

 

or is she merely waste

as they presume

 

she alone

seems to know the secret

of the seed

she bears
