Wonderfully thought-provoking! If we're missing the forest for the trees, what chance do the apples have?

George, you give these fallen "creatures" consciousness and therein rebirth them for the whole world to see - not just the local neighbors. Goodun, my friend.

you poems never fail to soothe the spirit, mine in particular which is wounded like that apple which has sustained many bites in it, save the right bite, from the right mouth, which will always be the woman I love, who I suppose didn't like apples as much as I thought and left me to wither in the earth.
