The thick bunchings of choking vinework on the dead tree are repulsive and turn our stomachs because they remind us of cancers or molds or swarms of insects.

Route the roofwater into the mulch. Imagine aiming full-force firehoses at bollards, as an attempted means of prying them out of the ground.

The 25% of the downtown Dayton Ohio cube-shaped poly(methyl methacrylate) globes that have not gotten somehow knocked askew during these long years.
I'd choke sadly if I found out that it was poorly-raised Dayton Ohio youths or visiting suburban Metro Dayton youths who've been messing with the 3 of the cubes that are screwy. I would want to feel like it wouldn't be stupid-headed of me to feel happy a…
