You!

You and your bendy bough,
swinging side to side,
leaning this way and that.
How your resilient branches
dip and duck, 
strong as oak,
polished and bold.

My apples fling themselves
into splendid trajectories,
abandoning these brittle
arms
 knowing this
turbulent trunk will
fall and lie 
in dirt
for lumber.
