So Last Year

2019 is starting to feel so last year
Happy New Year
Let’s bring a new one in
20 20s
Boot that old one out
Waste no time
Bring no wine
Just the grapes
Sun drenched or sun dried
Only what is good and whole and
Grounded in the truth of
Living well
And living right
Down the road that time has showed us
What is best for
And everything is
Equally included.

Boughs Of Holly

Trees with tinsel
Boughs of holly
Candy canes and eggnog
Rowdy bunches shopping
not for frankincense and myrrh
But because someone said they should
and there are holes in souls
that are looking for the meaning
Losing everything while looking
Messes everywhere they’ve been
being rowdy
It’s important to win
If Whitman’s Christmas chocolates get sold out
before you get a box
don’t worry
they’ll be replaced with Valentines
before those shelves are empty
Lost souls with holes
can’t seem to see what they are doing
Losing everything while looking for
everything they’re looking for
