Bitter Honeydew Do you think it tastes sweet when every passing car causes you to cough and gnash your teeth? Dust and dirt are a permanent sediment and color in your food. They permeate your blood and make it thick like honey. It drives you crazy, permanently overcome by fatigue. You‘re trying to dilute your blood: during the day with the energy drink and at night with vodka. But the tourists give you no rest. They "swarm“ in their cars like bloodthirsty mosquitoes hunting down the glow of your light bulb that shines in total darkness, and suck what remains of your strength. The buyers know "better“ the true price of your melons, and there, where they come from, is always cheaper. Nevertheless, they want to buy from you. After midnight you want to fall at last into a light sleep and permanently watch that never losing sight of your melons. At the same time dozens of mosquito continue to bite you something which you should have got used to by now. Soon it will be the morning and the work... Can you imagine, now, asking the seller if the melons taste sweet like honey?
