wow, great last lines. those totally cement the whole poem for me. "silky as impermanence" ain't too bad either. ;) like the apple/fruit motif, i might be stretching but i'm looking for the whole underlying knowledge motif, and then the fact that you squish it... to me, that just solidifies the whole theme of forgetting. great write, nice vocab.

Such an unusual subject for a poem.
I can honestly say I never thought of the bowls of fruit so often painted in still life pictures as rotting, more as captured and saved forever, preserved.
But I like that you picture it differently.
And I like that you contrast between learning to let go and trying to hold on.
