Boxes wrapped tight

cellophane pulled with

childish might–

a ribbon for spite.

 

You couldn’t open it

You shouldn’t open it

The date to do-

not quite here.

 

Cat-pawed

Candy canes broken

Cat-pawed bulbs tinkle

& glint.

 

Wooden soldier upright

Former guard of sunshine-sheets

Standing down in cardboard boxes

–day time duty a rare treat.

 

Baby-boy snores rumble the night

dreams Santa’s treacherous sight.

Candle wax dripped & piled

frozen high.

 

Cookie crumbs &

Sour milk

A hieroglyphic note,

 

Dear Santa,

 

I’ve been a good

I could be better,

A few transgressions

But let’s forget.

 

6am

The sun yet risen

Released from night-time

prison.

 

Listen now

Who’s awake?

Mom and Dad?

Sister and brother?

 

Stair-step beat of

Slipper shod feet

Heavy with sleep &

Surreptitious

conceit

 

Anno domini

A blessed year

has passed

Far to fast

 

Metal Santa

One broken ski

Mom to Mom

To me

 

Soon to

My boy

My Min-me

 

Merry Christmas
