so good in my mouth
you feel
under my tongue and
around it
little apple.

shiny and new
green to the world
and like a little tart
bringing the blush of fall
to the fullness of my lips
like biting into life itself.

mmm.

fall is full of things that taste wonderful--
such as kisses stolen under the waning moonlight
lingering
on the sweetness of
what i am only dreaming is happening.


i have visions of that cherry red color again
of being under falling leaves
i feel within my heart so bad
if i could just make it to central park
for one warm afternoon
then i could have
my autumn--

it elludes me
am certain it moves the longer i am not looking
by degrees farther when ere i am
although now as well as i know this city
and her
eaves
i cannot loose the park
under any excuse
longer

dance a little turn and dance a little turn
and soon we shall be into a new year
the space between my calendars
and anything can happen

don't let me live on the edge of a
coin
please don't make me balance out here forever
at some point we all reach our rope's end
just enough to hang myself by
i imagine
but the cord's not knotted
not looped graceful slender around
this neck
where your kisses
and hands
ought to be
instead it lay against my palm
unravelled for want of use
implying
softly
something else
entirely.

but i make my circle
draw my line
crisp in the sand
like the way the skin tastes
just on the underside
of the apple
