training wheels – December 20


angels and santas

on the tree

training wheels

for believing


that goodness

cares, that we’d

better not pout

or coal in our

stocking is a

bigger big story


that someone’s

taking notes and

names that will

matter in the end


that someone

actually wants

us to be happy

and that gifts

are what’s really

real about life


that reindeer maybe

don’t really fly or

elves come down



but goodness

somehow does.
