BLACK BEAUTIES

A product that looks like a bowling ball is available now. And I'm tempted, after seeing it at a market in Chinatown; the black beauty watermelon. I was initially taken aback by the name sign: 美黑人西瓜 ('mei haak yan sai gwaa'). The fruit itself lurked darkly in the bin.
A Satanic presence among the vegetable matter.

A new thing. I am curious. Crow-like.
But I don't really like melons.
And it's big.


Random thoughts while outside smoking, as a lagniappe: welcome to Fogtember. Now piss off you dogs and yakkity dingoes. Oh look, a silly person. Allergies. Dog poo. Beer bottle.

It must be really blazing inland.
The season of discontent.
