Fiesta Melons

In Benidorm there are melons,

Whole donkey-carts full


Of innumerable melons,

Ovals and balls,


Bright green and thumpable

Laced over with stripes


Of turtle-dark green.

Chooose an egg-shape, a world-shape,


Bowl one homeward to taste

In the whitehot noon :


Cream-smooth honeydews,

Pink-pulped whoppers,


Bump-rinded cantaloupes

With orange cores.


Each wedge wears a studding

Of blanched seeds or black seeds


To strew like confetti

Under the feet of


This market of melon-eating

Fiesta-goers.


- Sylvia Plath
