Apples in Autumn by Mbongeni Khumalo

Mbongeni Khumalo | April 11th, 2023 | poetry | No Comments


Sour grapes
Sweet as apples in Autumn
Ripe as raisins
Fresh fruit on its bottom
Sweet decay

Canned fruits
Are all the more sweeter
Eaten out of season
Like dried fruits
We mellow when we wear
Our bad old skins
As a fruit forbidden
We sin in heaven
& kiss in Eden
