something real

baked goods with chicken scratch writing
the words spell out H-a-p-y- H-o-l-d-a-ys
big smiles with no teeth
and santa hats and reindeer antlers atop teenagers

hot cocoa or apple cider if you like it spicy
snow on evergreen
salt stains on jeans
and chapped lips to go around

songs of bells and mommy kissing santa
the essential grinch or two
perhaps some eggnog
and definitely the hap-hap-happiest christmas since bing crosby danced with danny fucking kaye

three cheers for winter on the east coast and christmas on the west.
