This is Seasonal

Winter is charlie brown trees, humble piano
and dinners with old friends.
Sometimes I wish that things just didn’t
join up so nicely –
the ends of life touch
and there’s no escaping yourself,
especially during the holiday season
when we are locked together
in spiced rum and chocolate
talking about ten years ago --
yeah it makes you sad, but Christ, we had fun.

Happiness and cheer is all minor keys
and smoke lifts in blue swirls while
the snow falls in white ones,
a full belly and an extra 5 to 10 pounds –
please tell me not to be so hard on myself.
