The Peaceable Kingdom


Ginger-scented night
Snowflake-dusted day

An angel breezes by
awakening my heart
and singing
“Peace on earth to relatives of good will!”

For today the turkey will not be served
with a side of resentment
nor the dressing seasoned liberally
with vitriol

Glad tidings
of warfare accomplished
of lions and lambs
leopards and goats
feeding together

Hold the menagerie, Isaiah
just promise me a Christmas dinner
rich in savory memories
