Apple

Seeing.
Seeing
what is
shown.
What senses
allow.
Reality defined.
Defined by
the senses.
Defined by
what bubbled
up from
ooze.
Reality
that simple?
Creation
that limited?
Defined by
the product
of ooze?
Might there
be more?
Programmed.
Genetics.
Programmed.
Behave as
programmed.
Behave, controlled
genetically
predisposed
to see what’s
allowed.
Knowledge
limited.
Senses limited.
Reality veiled.
Veiled over,
simplified.
Simplified
by what’s allowed.
By what bubbled
up,
up from the ooze.
Creation defined.
Defined
by limited senses,
limited knowledge,
limited programming,
limited time.
Creation
Immense
complex
deep
infinite.
Tip of
reality is
all that’s allowed.
The apple
denied.
