Bruised Apples

by Alice   Dec 21, 2017

My insides do not sew the fabric of my flesh.
So de-robe me-
Pare away the horror-dress I wear
like the sheen of a dropped apple.
Then, burn the mottled and sunken mess
to behold a crispen bounty underneath.

    Hi Alice,

    this is a very well written piece, which certainly has your name threading through.
    A clever poem indeed, and receives my nomination.
    Well done
    Michael :)

    I am out of nominations but I do hope someone else sees fit to nominate this, Alice. More fine work from you; well done.

    All the best
