Prompt: The first sentence of a spam email.–“I’d been stuck found in the big apple in the course of every one of the environments.”

“Stuck in a Big Apple”
by Lizl Bennefeld

Stuck in a big apple,
gnawing my way toward
warm skin, a way out
into a broader world than this.
A world with light and movement
beyond the muffled sounds
of solitary chewing
in the core of my cradle,
this sweet prison.
