Bruised Fruit

The apple rolled
from the table top
and became bruised.
With that bruising it
lost some of its nature.
No longer entire
it lost some of its purpose.
It would not be
pleasurable to eat.
She became hurt.
Bruised like the apple.
Was some of her lost
in the bruising?
Like the apple?
No longer entire?
No longer whole?
I pledge to keep
bruised fruit.
