Eating Apples – Naran, Chennai


A poverty stricken writer wrote the word ‘ apple’
on a piece of paper and ate a dozen of those everyday.

A stone sculptor swallowed small stone balls
pretending to himself that they were apples

A wood sculptor chiselled wood shavings from
the apple tree and ate them.

Everyone was envious of the gardener – how much
harvested apples could he eat !!

He is eating scooped up soil from under the apple tree everyday .

Bundles of apple lay uncared for in government
Officials’ house
Day and night work together to make them rot.
The worms are eating the rotten apples everyday
