The lemons
are sour devils of fruit, they
tear my tongue apart, they are
yellow splotches of paint
against my ceiling and walls,
destructive, acidic tears
from the Sun
kicking my head onto a long road
with aching lemonade lanes.

The author's comments:
I ate a raw lemon and this is what I came up with.
