Winter solstice

When the sun sets early and we go to bed late
when the mercury falls and our weight rises
when the skin tightens and reason lets loose
when tempers shorten and body hair lengthens
when we fell a pine wishing for better times
and then with bacchanalian breath pray, while
bearing gifts, to witness a bright eastern star
we breathe in one last time in the somber void

the christmas tree
up and down to nowhere
tin tinsel spinning
