A vision of perfection: I looked out my kitchen window at a sea of bamboo, the late afternoon sun, barely clearing the earth, lighting them gently from the side, a light snow drifting in the air between the reeds —

wait a second –

Those aren’t bamboo, those are dandelions. Very tall dandelions. Four million very tall dandelions. And it’s not snow the air is full of, but dandelion seeds. Four billion dandelion seeds. Sigh. It’s just an artificial dream, made in China.
