POPEYE’S SPINACH

Bitter metallic zing
Accompanied by
Soggy, wet sloshed
Green vegetable
Resembling Swamp Thing
Tastes of sweat
Iliciting vomit
Topped with a
Dollop of white thick
Unsatisfying mayo
Sliding forcefully
Down my throat
Settling hard
And unwelcome
In my stomach acid
That threatens to errupt

Your Beloved Author,
Sandra Easter
