A Perfect Apple


I’ve just eaten an apple,
and as of late
It’s been hard to find
A Malus domestica that rates a nine.

The one I’ve just eaten was
perhaps a seven.

I dare not to hope for ten,
for the fruit that warrants
such a declaration of perfection
has only been seen few times
in human memory:

Eve’s Forbidden Fruit
The Golden Apple, casus belli of the Trojan War
Snow White’s Third Gift from the Queen
