there are silver glass balls like iridescent seedpods on the firebush in my front yard. there's a paper wreath hanging in the kitchen.
soon, i'll make hot cocoa with rosewater guimauve. i'll decorate the front of my house with C-9 lights so it looks like a gingerbread cottage. i'll have my friends over to string cranberry garland and watch children's shows on television.
can you tell? i'm desperately trying to avoid thinking about everything that's wrong.
