Salad Spinner of Sadness

Picture a feeling of sadness.

Now get your metaphors mixed up,

stick your feelings in a salad spinner, spinning round and round

button bobbing up and down

laughter lettuce

cleansing cabbage

wasted water.

Picture a feeling of sadness,

a painting hung up on the wall

oozing moisture and mold

when you go to bed,

the whole next day,

but you’re too tired to rinse it out


You try to identify a trigger: loneliness,

missing home,

but the causes just keep coming, a button going

up and down

round and round

flinging your feelings everywhere

so who really knows what’s got the lettuce snappy

or the cabbage cackling



if you’d like to support this blog, consider buying me a pizza🙂
