Strange Fruit Salad

I hate rhubarb.
the false sweetness..
stupid pink
annoyingly hairless
privately frigid
tenderness implied.

I hate coming home to find rhubarb in my house.
I can smell it a mile off
and want nothing of it.

Whereas,
You’ll have it anywhere
You even pay for it…
I am force fed rhubarb
rhubarb
rhubarb.

I hate you for liking it.
Suck lemons.
Or I will….

People who like rhubarb are idiots.
You’re an idiot.

I hate you for wanting rhubarb pie.
I hate you for making me make it.

Try mango, You Dick!
Or strawberries, You Fuck!
Or a banana, You Cock!

Try anything –
Just get over the rhubarb
and leave me,
the fuck,
in peace.

Artist's Description

I love partly overheard conversations. They almost never make sense.. but they are inspiring all the same. This is the result of an overheard conversation combined with the cerebral residue of reading a book of Charles Bukowski poetry, which btw… is bloody amazing. I read his work years ago – but read it now with greater understanding. Older and wiser.

ALERT: necessary swearing and exclamation points in this work.
