Forbidden Fruit

An apple wasn’t the only fruit he used

Garnished with everything edible
he could possibly find
even using sweet scented flowers
to further lure and to entice

He peeked out from behind
those black soul-less eyes
mouth hidden
but the devil couldn’t help
so aware that everything
about him was saying

‘Bite me’

I wanted this to be deeper than just about fruit. Despite it being fruit the pic seems somehow darker than that  (to me)

Paul Gauguin. The Meal, 1891

The boys wait for her.
one asks;
‘What are we waiting for?’


her mind is not on
feeding them.
She’s thinking of another
boy in the village to whom
she’s given her heart
and yet, she could be invisible
for all the fruits of her labour.

Their parents always absent
Why do I always have to be mother?’
She thinks and sighs..

adopts even more attitude

‘and, who says bananas have to be yellow!’
