The apple sat on the tip of the head
Nor tipping to one side
The apple remains in place
Till the gunshot is fired
The apple hangs back
The shiny surface infected by the tiny bullet
Thanks for reading my poem! My work today is inspired by a vocabulary word we were studying: “disinterested.” Disinterested means having no association with either side; unbiased or impartial. I thought about a judge in court, listening to both sides and only listening to the facts. When thinking about this scenario, it reminded me of an apple balanced on top of a head, the gun aimed towards it. The apple doesn’t waver and goes down with a fight.
