This Poem Fell 20 July 2006

Posted by ABD in ABD, Poetry.

This poem was going to be
about something else
until you rounded the corner
and it fell, as I once did.

The choice of preposition is crucial:
fell down? for? in?
I should say, rather, fell over
like an upturned applecart.

And so it is that one moment
collapses into another,
and the applewala must
gather up his fruit again.
