I tear an apple from the bough,
as if now such sweet
vengeance is

(first publication)

Recently Linked: My thanks to Greg Schwartz for his kind mention of my poem, “Ruins,” which appeared recently in Barbaric Yawp, in this entry of his blog, Haiku & Horror. Thanks also to Anna Zenonos for linking to my main website and Robert Burns glossary from her Web Log.

“Proverb” added to Poems, Slightly Used.

In the Forum: the stage is the thing.

My friends--Cassie's family, actually-have an apple orchard. Good proverb for anyone who has pruned during those wet grey spring mornings. Or for anyone who hasn't, for that matter.

Thanks, Katie. Maybe we can coax Cassie to come out here and take a bough....

Lol I doubt it. Last time we tried that she hid under the table in the sound room.
