You think it is sweet? Maybe, it depends where and when you bite it.

You think that it is sour? Maybe you can't appreciate its citric character.

You rather have it covered in cinnamon and sugar or caramel? Maybe you are averting your gaze from the underlying reality.

You think it is firm, but maybe it will be mush.

You think it is green or red, but maybe that is just the way you are looking at.

What of its shape? Maybe that really depends on where you are looking at it.

So what can we say of this apple? It is all there is for us. The rest is commentary and the dreams of bewildered fruit pickers.
