This is a Poem

This is a poem about the last page.
This is a poem about feeling panicked.
This is a poem about lists.
This is a poem about putting up lights and garland and angels.
This is a poem about credit cards and tired feet.
This is a poem about finding Mom’s recipe and buying butter – for baking!
This is a poem about choosing the right card and signing your name 47 times.
This is poem about wrapping paper, tape and ribbon.
This is a poem about bells and snow and playing old records.
This is a poem about feasting.
This is a poem about getting around to reading the familiar story
and wondering, how did I let something that started out so simple
get to be so complicated?
This is a poem about Christmas.
