How to write a poem about an apple

Don’t write from your heart
write from the sockets
of your eyes

bore a hole
into the object
in front of you

be ruthless
lean in

what
do
you
see

tell me
what it looks like
would taste like
if you ate it

tell me
it is as green
as anything
but grass

if you are stuck
go deeper
get right inside
it will tell you

I am shiny
like a doll’s leg
I am green
as the blanket of weeds
thick and quiet
on top of the pond.
