Forbidden Fruit


I daydream
Of eating an apple
That I know I shouldn't

I daydream about
Raiding a whole orchard
Of the stupid blooming things
But I know I won't
My conscience
Tells me no
And I listen
I know I will he tossed
Out of the garden if I do
I just know I will
So I go to sleep
Sweet, sweet sleep
With a good conscience
And bruised needs too

Hey I guess you can't
Have your cake and eat it too

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem is from the poet's first collection Folk Hero Midget and is a poem of admission. In this poem he is writing of the desire he felt when attracted to another woman while trapped in the Eden of a relationship which he was unhappy in.
The use of this imagery was ironic, as he was not in paradise, but feared the world outside of the relationship. So instead he allowed himself to wallow in wanting.
