Why has Duffy used an 'onion' in her poem 'valentine' ?
I'll take a stab at the dark and say it's for sarcastic reasons - as who would want an onion on valentine's day? They're ugly to look at, when you cut them, they make you cry. Whereas you'd want a heart for valentine's day because it's romantic, symbolic of love and etc.

However, I haven't read the poem but I assume that's why amongst other interpretations of course.

It depends on where she uses it
