doing the laundry
the cloths swish around
the basement is cold
cold and hard
the paper in my hand is yellow with age
and has rips in it
the carols on that paper have been read every single year
again and again
since before i was born.
i sing those carols
my dad criticing my singing at every line
"better get in tune before the relatives come"
true. it's nice and warm in the living room.
my brother and a family friend playing chess.
i play mancala with my parents.
i play the piano.
i like to play carols.
i like hanging ornaments on the tree.
it's all familiar to me.
it's my familiar cristmas.
everyone has their own kind of cristmas,
it's not wrong to have it one way,
it's just diferent cristmas,
diferent and the same.
this is mine.
