from a poetry prompt



It's gone
The magic of Christmas

Christmas decorations
In my house
Are no more inspiring
Than empty dinner plates

Random houses
With colored lights
Remind me
Of being cold

I love shopping
Because
I love making people
Happy

I want them to have joy
When they open
Presents
And think kindly of me

But there is no magic

  1. Hey, I hear that, as the years get further along, Christmas seems like just another nine letter word.
