. . . tree philosophy . . .

. . . first, throw a bunch 
of extra strings of white lights 
at the tree . . .
. . . try hard not to use bad language
 because it's nine years old 
and there are so many dark spots . . . 
. . . replace all burned out 
red globe lights 
{about twenty of them} 
because they're even older 
than the tree . . .
. . . sort through all 
the plasticky, 
shatterproofish, 
red and white ornaments . . .
. . . make sure they're super-sized . . . 
. . . that way it doesn't take 
very many of them . . .


. . . stuff and cram them 
in between the branches . . .
. . . wire hooks optional . . .
. . . they really don't hang . . .


. . . then stand back and squint . . .


. . . everything looks better 
when you stand back and squint! . . .
