Poetry: Tossed Salad

Mango with broccoli
Applesauce with tomatoes
My fruits are mixing with my veggies
Crunchy lying next to fleshy meat
Round and rectangular shapes
Bright colors and textures in concert
Perpendicular forms, Parallel situations
Juxtapose elements comingle
Two people walking side by side
Unaware how their vectors will change
With this innocent meeting
There’s an orange glow on the horizon
New day starting with mixed reviews
No matter all things finding proper position
Are hated by most –for a while
While others claim gastric problems
Keep them from partaking
The body needs both veg & sweet pulp
Why not eat a bowl full
Realign your backbone
And dive into it
…but keep your napkin handy
