 +//**Biting through skins**//
 +She peels the apple\\
 +the effort\\
 +of biting through skin\\
 +too much.\\
 +The peel, red-bitter, white-sweet\\
 +curls in snake coils\\
 +onto pale wood.\\
 +In the bowl\\
 +more apples gleam\\
 +blushing at their own kind\\
 +Help yourself, she tells me\\
 +and I do\\
 +filling my hand with fruit.\\
 +The table snake browns\\
 +its skin shrinks.\\
 +A hiss\\
 +and my teeth cut\\
 +through bitter to the core.\\
 +Unwise I am always\\
 +biting through skins.
