A poemlet. Thanks to *AGMeade
for inspiring the thing--she mentioned her love of watermelon and I started telling a story and then it sort of fell into a poem.
Questions for critters:
Is it too long? What is most cuttable?
Is it too prose-like? Does it need more sonic devices (rhyme, alliteration) or rhetorical awesome (imagery tricks, metaphor) to justify it as a poem?
