I watch you take out a tree (if you call it a tree).
It’s has no fresh scent; has not been outside– and there’s no craggy stump.
Three parts it has as I watch you ‘put it together’.
You bend branches all around; while others are spread open more.
Once done you stand back to admire your handy work.
You check for holes; rearrange a branch here or there.
I watch not sure what’s coming next.
You place blanket around bottom of tree. (but you call it skirt, why?)
What are these color lights coming next.
You wrap them around tree (all the way to top).
You grab chair; place bright star light on top.
Again you step back and admire your handy work.
You say tomorrow will be more decorating. (what does that mean?)
Guess I’ll find out tomorrow.
