Because the poem was supposed to have a local flavor, I thought about the times in my life when I had been most filled with a feeling of beauty and awe. What came to mind was going to the Lafayette area, south of the city, to pick apples. I had a vision of the sky being really blue overhead, like it is here in the fall, and seeing trees laden with apples. My heart would just fly! And I would say to my children, “This is just like being in Eden!”

So the poem is about that experience, and also about the mythology around Eve. I’m intrigued by her desire.

Like Eve in Eden
I wander apple—lush hills
dreaming my first bite
