Almost Christmas


Almost Christmas

I stand in front of an empty spot
“Put up the tree”
You’d yell as your footsteps fell
legs first, belly second
Humming down the stairs

As a child,
I went wild with the trinkets and the bells
colour colour colour
every branch looked swell
I grew; then just red and blue
“Not done”, you’d say
But I did it my way.

Now the tree is still boxed
the house is bare
X marks the spot
when we last stood there
