fear the apple

they finally caught up with the apple tree
hidden in the yard, standing
slow as a century and
pretending wickedly
to be crooked

oh how the apples fell
like Dresden incendiaries
onto the wet grass and
sat there
waiting to explode, just how the
politicians said they would

surrender and fear the apple, they cried
for the apple has declared war they
sleep in your cities and
occupy the bellies of your children
