Archive for the tag “christmas”

Christmas day came & went

All I wanted was a compass bike bell
I didn’t even know they existed
until I saw one in the JC Penny catalogue

Christmas day came & went
and there I was delivering the news again
right along with the early bird

It’s easy to learn to grow old
while you’re the youngest of the bunch
learning quickly at an early age

on the last day of christmas

it’s getting late she says
and I agree silently

lights turn on and off
flickering like christmas tree
inside new year’s eve

did you put that bird back
in the pear tree
she asks nonchalantly

I did indeed I reply
and fed them both
six ounces each of your favorite
chocolate porter

outside felines are screaming
after having witnessed
albino barn owl eyes
both of us smiling slightly
neither of us moving an inch
