This will be the Christmas I remember
stringing popcorn and cranberries for hours
to wrap around the tree

the lightly buttered popcorn, all we could find
musking fresh pine- and a smidge of blood,
won over by the needle. The year of a

mostly empty apartment: the plain
white walls and black metal chair
we use as a TV stand.  Telling ourselves

we're not broke; we choose to live like this:
nomads with little to grab
when we get out and go

and one buttered Christmas tree
adorned with blue lights
and beer corks.
#35 - Christmas 2012

At first, I kind of got a bittersweet feeling from this, but in the end, I couldn't help but smile. Christmas isn't about all the fanciness and money, after all. Its about...well...I could go on and on about the different meanings, but to me its just about the joy it brings. If it isnt bringing joy whats the point? Ah. Kind of unrelated. I liked this. It was simple, yet it showed so much.

Take tell if the narrator is happy with the choice, or resentful, or resigned. Very nice. I like the uncertainty.
