  1. “Watermelons” by Charles Simic was a very short but meaningful poem. The poem is only ffetein words long and has all of two sentences. It starts off by referring to the watermelons as Green Buddhas and then follows by their location, on the fruit stand. (Line 1 and 2) The next two lines, I felt had the most meaning, “We eat the smile And spit out the teeth.” (Line 3 and 4) The last two lines are saying how we take the best parts but do not take everything as a whole. The smile is only as good because we have the teeth but we do not realize that. If we refer this to a watermelon, then it is like eating the meat of the watermelon but spitting out the seeds as if they were nothing. What we did not realize is that we needed the seeds to get the watermelon in the first place. I feel that Charles Simic is trying to portray in the poem that we need to appreciate everything as a whole.
