There is only one answer choice that is not absolutely flat-out literal -- that is, in which the words are not according to their literal dictionary definitions. Which ONE is that?
If you're not sure, look up all the major words:

Here's the poem.
"when I watch you
wrapped up like garbage
sitting, surrounded by the smell
of too old potato peels
when I watch you
in your old man's shoes
with the little toe cut out
sitting, waiting for your mind
like next week's grocery
when I watch you
you wet brown bag of a woman
who used to be the best looking gal in Georgia
used to be called the Georgia Rose
I stand up
through your destruction
I stand up"
Since you're looking for the ONE phrase that is NOT an idiom, your first answer -- either a or b -- could be correct. However, it seems that a is the most factual and literal expression -- so it must not be an idiom in this poem.
