The worst taste in the world
is not of curry with too much salt
Or of coffee with no sugar
Not of a chocolate
when you eat it
an year after it’s expiry
Or of your chicken when it is undercooked
The worst taste isn’t of a bitter vegetable
that was churned and churned
to get a bright green juice
to heal your upset stomach

The worst taste is
of anger
as you swallow it deep down
Where it stays
longer than
you want it to
And of its little pieces
that stay in your mouth
with a taste that lingers
just to torture you.
