xmas poem

A silly sentimental Christmas card
Captures the moment.

Not a time for the fearful.
Knowing no longer rules.

In the unknown are possibilities.
A and not A.
A democratic breakthrough and

An authoritarian posture.

The first Noel…
The second coming.
A rough beast —
Not the status quo.
Are we open to what follows?
To shape we must embrace.

Cathy, fearing and fearlessly
Charts her/our future and
Cheerfully from her workshop on 54th Street
Spreads glad tidings
That pierce the gloom.

December, 2016
