The Heart Stopped (Mid-Race)

 

Virginia M. Mohlere

 
 

Someone’s always throwing apples in the way    and the heart,  feather-ankled,  with its hair waving behind like a flag,  stumbles.    Look at all those apples.  How could you waste such beauties— one to eat with cheddar  four to stew down for sauce,  six to bake in a pie?  Just to hold them  and chant their names  is a pleasure:  Newton Wonder for cooking  Cox Orange Pippin for eating  Ashton Bitter for cider, to drink your troubles away.    Here is the heart,  standing in a kitchen with apples.  There was a destination.  There used to be  somewhere the heart was going.
