Sweet & Busted by J.B.
I’ve bruised my brain like you could a blueberry
with all the dope.
Cracked my psyche like cherries cracked
Mangled and shredded my body like that mango
on Gallahger’s stage.
Lacerated my nose to spite my face like a lemon
ready for a cocktail.
Torn myself apart at the seams like a tangerine
to share with all.
Cut my heart in two like a cantaloupe
too many times to count.
In the end and after it all, I do make one
crazy fruit salad.
