GIVING UP CHRISTMAS, 2010

Left over poinsettias fade to pink,

crumpled brown leaves scatter on the stained black and white linoleum.

Plastic Christmas tree sticks out of the half-closed brown cardboard box.

Broken red ornament shatters in fragments on the brown carpet.

It’s all just an illusion,

this thing.
