Poetry from the kitchen #10

Green Apples

Elisabeth Rowe

Orchard apples
acid green
twist the face in sweet distaste

Snuggled in their
porcelain bowl
shadowed curve and shining sky

Granny Smiths’
sours the tongue’s experience

Seditious things
apples are
hardcore hate in skintight love

Watch out
Eve left her
dental records in this fruit
