Another fine collaboration with my blogger friend, Rose, the Poet Rummager. This is a reminder of what not to do when you see a neighbor’s fruitful tree.

I grabbed the apple.
From the neighbor’s tree, it hung-
too ripe to ignore.
I see you there, thief.
Mr. Jones’ silhouette flinched.
He grasped his cane tight.
