If i understand you cannot use a PopupMenu for this purpose.

As docs say:

A PopupMenu displays a Menu in a modal popup window anchored to a View. The popup will appear below the anchor view if there is room, or above it if there is not. If the IME is visible the popup will not overlap it until it is touched. Touching outside of the popup will dismiss it.

You may want to try to use PopupWindow perhaps, which allows such positioning.
