Christmas in Connecticut
Not what you think. Rain.
The cards are all in Greek.
The man unwraps a joke in the box.
The woman unwraps
a silver man with the head of a bird.
They are so in love, the four of them,
the man the joke the woman the beaked
they laugh at the eyes, the leg, the ear,
the arm all hung in the tree.
Two headless torsos,
his and hers, twist in the branches.
See how the world is made new?
Whatever I tell you is true.
