Big Apple


floor plan echo by James Prochnik

You are closer to the shiny
Big apple most everyone
Finds enticing, appetizing.
I’m down south nearer the sweet–
Yet tangy–luscious peaches.
Let’s blow this fruit stand!

I hunger for you,
Only you whet my appetite…
But it’s far from burdensome.
It’s an electric, euphoric force;
I’ve never felt more alive.

—  You thrill me to the core
