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



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
