A Secret🍎

By Schuyler Paige Brooks 

Copyright ©2024

I ate an apple to its core.

Licked and sucked the mouth

Shaped holes left by my teeth.

I nibbled the fruit and remembered 

People saying flesh when talking 

Of meat: plant and human and

I found arousal as I tasted sweetness

Upon my own lips, as I thought about you 

in the other room unaware.
