An Offering

by Rodney Nelson

the crab tree in an untended yard
held out a weight of ready apples
for what hand or tooth or beak might want
to take
and for nothing if none did

around that crab tree now in the snow
the whole crop fades into entropy
where none has been to want and take it
as if
the end were come already
