From Pluck Another Apple, Eve, and Finish It


Gloria Mundi

On this otherwise undistinguished evening, 

a man at the garage collects money 

in a four-by-five booth 

with a rickety heater, 

his accented “Thank you” 

passed across gloved hands.

A child paws the velour of a pup’s ear, 

wrestling in an uncoordinated tangle—


Somewhere off the Kona coast, 

porpoises are racing for the hell of it. 

Who knows? They could all be God. 

Something mightily bare-skinned and brilliant, 

as like to us 

as the David to the marble 

that waited for so long, 

hovers in the world.

Pluck another apple, Eve,

and finish it.

We are all promises 

watching to see 

how we will keep
