Fitting The Mold

These apples are calibrated to fit the mold perfectly.
Besides the environmental nonsense of the plastic container, there is something disquieting about the strict selection of fruit, and the subsequent trashing of those who don't conform -- unless they're lucky enough to land in farmer's markets as freaks. It's like a metaphor for L.A.'s infatuation with the perfect looks, and the ubiquitous reshaping that makes nature seem unnatural.
