THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Apple Season” by Joyce Sutphen: kitchen, porch, cover, apple, knife, takes, turns, bucket, strips, crisp, cinnamon, live
Strips of token left by the porch
A feather, apple by and large
In the kitchen some cinnamon
Crisp leaves that seem to come alive
In the bucket also are some knives
How is it there in Michigan?
Do they take turns leaving tokens?
Some are covered by emotions
Strange world we have to listen in*
