Christmas Sparklebug

IMG_3045

Glitter, Sparkles, Santa
Flying reindeer, miracles
happen all the time
When it’s Christmas
at least
That’s what I seem to be feeding
my family
Christmas shot straight into
the bloodstream
through the TV
mounted on the wall, flat.
Then frown and scold
when they act like junkies
glazed over greedy eyes
hands full of plastic candy
ungratefully begging for another fix
When it’s all over
they ask me
where was the magic mom?
