The yellowish green peel sliced off and i began to see a smooth creamy surface. As i peel down further i see bruises, oh so many terrifying bruises.
I bite in and my teeth slice off a piece that slips softly into my mouth.
The mushy sweetness pours all over my tongue like the first rain of a hot summers day.
A few more chomps i bite, but the last bite i get is gushy and sour. It tastes of rotten people and expired relationships. I squeal and squirm so i can take another bite to wash away the bruised area. But all I get is more bruises till I hit a sweet spot, and with the sweet spots come the sour as well.
Now i am out of banana, with only the poison filled peel and the bitter sweet after taste of life.
