it’s the most wonderful time of the year

he read an article where the author
wrote that she doesn’t do christmas
anymore. a contradiction summing up
the season: obligatory gift giving.
a feeding frenzy of torn paper, torn
boxes, torn hearts, too much booze,
too many fights into the night, sad,
sad songs that tug at heartstrings
stretched to the limit, some even
pop, pop, pop like the festive bubbly
sung about in the hyper-happy holiday
song and afterward? sometime after
the new year amid all the broken
resolutions, the most important day
of the year, the day of a spike or
drop in the market depending on
whether or not holiday sales met
corporate expectations, and then
the bills and all those january
suicides….
