From Israel comes a tale of forbidden lust, submission and transgression. The heady days of youth are overcast with warnings against sin. Just one seed of the pomegranate condemned Persephone to a lifetime tethered to the Underworld and separated from the careless innocence of her youth. Alon Shastel and Ben Zeiger evoke this perilous, seductive moment on the cusp of adulthood, at which youth is at its most ripe and in constant danger of being plucked.

Iv. Forbidden Fruit. I.

Forbidden fruit a flavor has
That lawful orchards mocks;
How luscious lies the pea within
The pod that Duty locks!

                       II.

HEAVEN is what I cannot reach!
The apple on the tree,
Provided it do hopeless hang,
That ‘heaven’ is, to me.

The colour on the cruising cloud,
The interdicted ground
Behind the hill, the house behind, —
There Paradise is found!

Emily Dickinson
