Gardening


My yard is overgrown green
grass like thick, shaggy fur and weeds
no longer blending in with the ferns
but overtaking them, making them
look like the intruders.

Katie shaves the beard off my lawn
while I clip the hedges’ reaching fingernails.

Fuck gardening. No, seriously, I hate it. I have no motivation at all to spend that kind of time and effort for something I don't give two shits about.

Haha Andrew I agree it's not something I look forward to. Don't get me wrong, I want a beautiful colourful garden in my front yard one day.... but I hate the amount of effort and upkeep it takes. However I'm surprised someone who's so precise about the inside of his home (using coasters, etc.) doesn't care much about the outside, haha. You guys should get a bunch of flowers that are pretty but don't take much work to keep alive ;)

Moreover, how can someone who cares so much about shaving the hair off his face not care about shaving the grass off his lawn?

If it's any consolation, there will be no need to worry about gardening as soon as fall approaches =)
