we didn't have christmas.

not,
at least,
in the way i was raised to think of christmas.
there was no tree.
there were stargazers:
there was no unwrapping.
there was un-stuffing:
there was no snow.
or reindeer.
there was a sunset:
there was no turkey.
there was lobster.  and pomegranate seeds:
it was a bundle of made-up newness,
spur of the moment happiness.
maybe it WAS christmas,
after all.
