a christmas rambling.

I know
Where to find cookie cutters
in the shapes of:
pigs, ducks, cowboy boots, and sunglasses.

The shepherd who watches his flock by night,
is not watched by anyone
except for a few, brief glances
from oblivious sheep.

After the drive-by shooting,
Erika watched her cousin die.
Mary was young and hopeful.
Joseph planned to leave her.
Erika was nine years old.

A sixty-year-old woman roller blades
and glides about in neon colors.
The old widow Anna prayed her lifetime
to see the son of man.

Black watches White chase the sunset.
Sonya wept.

Joy to the Word, the Lord has come.
Let Earth receive her King.
