Happy Fourth of July! Here’s how to eat a cantaloupe.
Here is a gift from American poet Eve Merriam, How To Eat A Poem.
Don’t be polite.
Pick it up with your
fingers and lick the juice that
may run down your chin.
It is ready and ripe now, whenever you are.
You do not need a knife or fork or spoon
or plate or napkin or tablecloth.
For there is no core
to throw away.
