Free Persimmons

I woke to the billowing curtains blowing in the breeze, and the scent of jasmine just outside my window. This once perfect garden now sparse: the unkempt grass, the bougainvillea, and the persimmon tree that we loathe-- an over-abundance of ripening fruit. The early morning sun casts a hazy pillar of light on my bedroom floor. Don't wake me up.
