Susan Hughson – APPLE TO APPLE

 

APPLE TO APPLE

In the season
of apples suspended
in air,
wood piles
and winter spiders,

you are lost
with a canvas bag;
an apple
a book
and a camera.

Travel past
previous windows,
a green house
between
here and not

take a photograph-
books hold clues,
save the
apple
for later.

You fall forward
from this page
landing,
dear one,
on this spot.

House still standing
pine board fence,
faintest
tincture
of fog,

someone must have
eaten
the apple.
