Indifferent fingers stab a button

commanding electrons to shuffle

into line.

Plastic and tungsten dutifully

work their tawdry magic

and lo, it’s Christmas.

Squeezing overripe dates

for all they’re worth,

teenaged boys thank the Lord

for the free show.

Parents mannequin offspring

into desired configurations while

taxis disgorge more, more.

Face aglow with silent wonder

a child slowly closes pure eyes,

letting the light wash over her.
