Inspired by Robley Wilson’s
      “I Wish in the City of Your Heart” and Billy Collins

I wish in the apple of your heart
the seeds swaddled within
would once again sprout and root
and the pulp of its white flesh
would feed your love
for me. I remember when
the red promise of sweetness
would slowly find its way to the outer skin,
and you would begin to blush.
