The fresh apple core
contains enough live molecules
to assemble a human being
with all his charms and flaws
pink skin and rot under the nail
soft flesh
bone of the seed
hair of the stem

this should be an easy task
for a master with fine fingers
and the precision of a watchmaker
why then
this monstrous waste
of material
or That One has gross motor skills?

Translated from Bulgarian by Katerina Stoykova-Klemer
