[L.E. Leone is never afraid to tackle the big questions in short poems—one of the many reasons we love her & her work both!  Enjoy!]


Apple falls exactly under
the apple tree, rolls a little
Bees get into it.

You see a rotten apple, danger
dead dog, and say, “Amen.”
I see the light, a future tree,
and say, “Shit.”

Man, what’s the difference?
