Trust

I offer the apple up
bruised all up on one side
and a bite the shape of her mouth.
It could be much worse,
sliced and eaten by many
so I think I’ve made it out OK.
He holds it red in his hands
and smiles as if its gold
or a long lost photograph.
It’s browning at the open edges
but still good.
Still good enough to eat.
