Secret Bench

Secret Bench

I've passed this sculpture many times, 
even photographed it before. 
These two young people sit outside in any weather.
 Today I looked a little closer, 
noticing their expressions.

Detail of Secret Bench

While he (who holds the apple) 
seems to be coaxing her 
whispering sweet nothings perhaps 
she seems more reticent. 
Playing hard to get? 
Or does she know what happens 
to those who taste the apple? 
They sit here, 
suspended in time 
between youth and adulthood.

  1. A take on Adam and Eve? He seems to be whispering something to her.
