By A Stem Attached
for T.L.A.

did I pick her or did she pick me
bitter or sweet,
off of what tree
in what garden growing

her country is Eden,
as green as Genesis
as green as
in the beginning

what about the fruit that I am
and the fruit that she is
nearer ripe or nearer green

or are we both spoiled rotten
by each other
with all our mutual
love and attention
love and affection
