And he'd prove it,cupping the buzzer instantlywhile the host with the swatter stared.In the spring our palms peeled like snakes.True Arabs believed watermelon could heal fifty ways.I changed these to fit the occasion.Years before, a girl knocked,wanted to see the Arab.I said we didn't have one. After that, my father told me who he was, "Shihab"—"shooting star"—a good name, borrowed from the sky.Once I said, "When we die, we give it back?"He said that's what a true Arab would say."
