AN AGONIZING CHOICE
I was hoping for an early frost.
The bugs would die.
And I was planning on dancing on their bug graves.
But now I’ve had a change of heart.
My tomatoes have had a huge late-season bloom.
I want the frost to hold off a bit.
But I also want the bugs to die.
And I want to dance barefoot.
It’s an agonizing choice.
But it’s not too much to ask, is it?
