The Apple and the Tree

by gillis

 

 

 

 

 

A mirror you didn’t seek out

or one you’ve turned away from

and yet there’s something

undeniable there.

The first time you hear it

you’re not sure you’ve heard it

you ask them to

repeat it

repeat it again.

Then it’s unmistakable and it’s true

that the words they’ve said

have come from you.
