black watermelon seedswhen i was 4,
i ate a black watermelon seed.
i remembered hearing that you were not supposed to do this.
so i told my teacher and she said,
"uh oh dear, don't drink too much water and stay out of the sunlight."
and for weeks, i drank only milk, and didn't tell a soul.
because if i opened my mouth,
the seed might become whole.
