Poem

Poems can portray many different meanings for both the writer and the
readers of the poem. The meaning in the poem “Watermelons” to me means we
take what we want sometimes without realizing the importance of what we
leave behind. While the seeds (teeth) in the watermelons are just a
nuisance to us without them there would not be anymore watermelons. The
meaning being sometimes you have to take the good with the bad.

I love this poem because it makes an offhand comment about life. We
try, and when we're in a buddha-state, we succeed, in taking from
life the sweetness while spitting out the bitter. Saw a guy in Provincetown
who had this poem printed on the back of his green t-shirt. Very cool.
