CORRECTIVE

Feeling small
and useless

as an
apple's core—you capitulate

and just retire, dis-
inclined,
to rest

supine, out of
sight for a
while some-

place dark
to shore-

up whatever
scant fleshy
substance might

be left
and worth it
to preserve

and vague-
ly reinstall
upon your

eventual and
reluctant re-

emergence,
wearily, and
only then when

you manage
to, grumpily
acquiescing—you still don't

feel great—
so much

as you feel
horribly

real.
And here.
And now and

necessary—as
an apple's core.
