December 2019

inedible stems
they get longer and longer
while priced by the pound
roasted Brussels sprouts
too much noodle too discern
if they sink or float
bitter rivalry
I prepare for attrition
defeat in a flash
meeting santa
thirty-minute wait
for five seconds of crying
meets expectations
merchants and marauders board game
ports of Trinidad
protected from piracy
cumulonimbus
savory or sweet
baby of discerning tastes
utilizes fork
family portrait
Xander doesn’t understand
why he’s getting gifts
three long Christmases
head heavy with memories
finally asleep
