dying for Chrtistmas

The tree we cut
and carried
into our home

the one
we shackled
then
trimmed

sang to
then
toasted

now lays
in the gutter

her
hooks
and tinsel
riffling on the wind

Strobe your masses
with the seen and unseen.

Feed them “must watch”
“must play” content.

Imply jobs
are supposed to suck.

Live for the weekend.

Cast excessive living
as ultimate meaning.

Declare it unpatriotic or uncool
to think otherwise.

Render freedom irrelevant.

Bare Trees in Winter,Yosemite National Park, California, USA

just one leaf holds on
brown and brittle it struggles
loosing some pieces
