FIRST CORE A Poem By DIANE SOLIS Near the wide open window that looks out at the cypress trees where the sunsets shimmered amber on your shoulders, I sit at our table, apple in one palm, paring knife in the other, and begin slicing and coring the last of the last I brought home to you. The fat robin returns to sit in our tree. She takes a good look at or through me. Noticing how she watches me, I realize, in all these years I've never cored one apple that wasn't for you. *Note that we recommend reading "First Core" in its original formatting on page 46*
