Open your mouth
put it between your teeth
slash the rind in two
let the seed in
let it skate
in your tongue
let it slide
in your palate
fill the hole
with a seed
go slow at first
like a virgin kiss
then undress it
remove its coat
swallow its tenderness
leave it naked
and spit the pepita
where the earth
will recover
its roots.
