The Latest Installment in the Ongoing Poem Series About the Winter of 2005

December 27, 2005
Christmas presents

Fern gave me bangles from India
They’re gold and multicolored
and made of glass
and tinkle as I move my arm

Mama gave me a leaf-green duffle coat
snuggly and soft
Today is cold and gray and dark
so a bright warm coat is the just right thing

Bill gave me a truly beautiful cutting board
long and thin with a handle with a hole in it
made of some unusual wood
that is somehow both blonde and dark
