On first sight,
you placed my heart in your hands,
like an apple
filling perfectly the palm,
where every nuance, dent, and ridge
fit each of mine.

You took fruit to lips,
unearthing hidden knowledge:
softness beneath taut flesh.
It was tender and sweet,
and you knew me then.

My core, over time,
has absorbed into your own,
and our melded seeds
have birthed an orchard
to provide a lifetime’s worth of
everything we need.
