Green Apples

by Uriel Tovar

so take me out and
i'll tear
into the red
velvety background
of your life.
seems frayed and bleeding
around your lips
your young

i want to know
what is that light
in your
focused only
on tears and scar tissue
into the palm of my hands.

my fingertips
always sank
into your back.
