Don’t Leave the Apples Behind

Posted on 13 February 2010

Do whatever you want but don’t leave the apples behind.
You can wrap them in some foil, I suppose.
Although I find it’s just as easy to put them in paper.
And bring the large apples with the small ones, too.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking that they won’t taste as good.
And tell everyone you meet in the new place
that you’ve brought the apples with you
out of consideration for what they may have missed.
At the same time, however,
don’t tell them that you had to polish the apples with your shirtsleeves.
Or that you had to clip the stems together
in a place of worship that made brackets for you
that couldn’t be retrieved until dawn.
