Mostly True Memoirs
THE HOLLY BUSHES IN MY FRONT YARD
I put spider webbing all over the holly bushes in my front yard.
It looked good and spooky.
I never really thought about how I was going to take it down.
Holly is a beautiful, sentimental, Christmasy sort of plant.
But it’s got evil, Halloweeny, razor-sharp leaves.
And all I had in the house were crayon band-aids from our recent ER visit.
Next year I will decorate the front door and the oak tree.
But not the vicious holly bushes.
