Dogs 2014

NOEL NEXUS
(12/20/14)


the year
limps along
through December
and there's nothing
but Christmas
remaining

I tire
of hearing
the accolades
of the season

as much
as I tire
of hearing
its shortcomings

both right

both wrong

seemingly
surrounded
by madness
I search
for some room
in the middle

to peacefully
exist

to say
my peace
quietly

to myself

to my
God
