SENSE memory

After a deep session of rain in April
I walk through walls of smell

Not the expected wet trash smell that makes tourists affirm why they don’t live here
But the unexpected smell of wet earth and watermelon?

The unexpected memory of picnic time digging through the ground
And Mom breaking open the green to get to the pink.
