Watermelons are great because of their seeds
that shoot out memories of childhood competitions.
Thickly rinded, they hold within them Summer’s weight,
full of watery sweet pinkness that refreshes and reminds us
of fireflies and barbeques and sweat and sugar.
Gigantic, striped and unromantic, these oversized berries
use their mass to spread solid hydration, combating heat and blues.
