Outside the frame

Silent the apple lays
half peeled
in the painting
but it’s especially the knife

brilliant sharp on the board

that draws my attention
just one hand away from
his fixed prey

that’s why I also suspect
on the outside of the frame
the man or the woman
ready to complete the task
at least a child
to bite a piece out of the fruit

maybe I will be back tomorrow
I wouldn’t be surprised
if I could look the worm
out of the rest of this apple.
