How You Are Like a Cantaloupe

one shouldn’t court
such controversy
so early on with no
payoff plan in place
one means this to
be a simple poem
about ribald rind
brainiac of seeds dis-
solves brown sugar
hypotaxis in scalding
green tea teaches
the kid a thing or two
about sweetness
manners like
a cantaloupe.
