Thoughts on Christmas...

12.25  Christmas Aria

All the greatest gifts
under the worlds tallest tree
festooned with every garland
that God ever made
could never make up the gap
that fell between us today.


12.26  Christmas Duet

And yet, 
your face pulls me into orbit
once again leaving me
dangling here like a mobile
ornament in this wasteland
of paper and bows.


12.27  Daddy’s Gonna Kill Ralphie

Those sonsabitches
flashed across the glass
in three rooms
for twelve hours
must have seen the damn thing
seventeen times
and still
I’d turn it on in a second
just to see that boy
under the sink
and the doom in his eyes
all solved
by a mother and her milk.
