The Platitude of Apple Trees

It would
be stating the obvious to reveal how
apple trees

sprout more often
in a search engine than
clichés,

but at their
core, dark seeds are reminders of
the obvious.

If what
is round will come around again,
there it is

again. The
rot occurs because of how we
leave things,

inevitable,
and the half-eaten worm is not
biblical, but

visual, that
one concrete surprise outside yet in
the platitudes.
