bitter as sour patch kids holding my tongue hostage momentarily
an earring symbolic of the detour that i took avoiding exodus-
institutionalized

bitter as green apples not yet ripe enough to naturally free themselves from trees-
picked by Eve and renamed strange fruit after the fall.

bitter as mustard greens without the sugar that absorbs the inherent bite

any measure of bitter juxtaposed to the bitter cup makes bitter seem not so bitter.
