Christmas ruins everything

Christmas ruins everything, ya know?

the way the star ripped through black night

the only true consummation

between eternal and mortal,

unseen and flesh.

nothing about the cataclysmic smooths over hate or ties up

wrong with a shiny red bow

no

the whole mess of man is blown wide open,

pain and shame undone

lies and hidden things exposed

writhing in the cold, night air

until the Truth is swaddled and

held.
