Like Apples

Bond of Union, 1956, by M.C. Escher


God peels us
like the apple we ate.

Peels us with snakebite
and birth.

Through fruit flesh rotten
and sweet

to heirloom seeds
for the garden.

For The Mag

I love the image of us as heirloom seeds. For our part, knowing this and birthing our babies anyway, my god we're brave!
