Seven Tiny Reindeer


when words don’t matter much

just shut-up

I remember more then I let on

alluding to

me and you

if you think it's

hard to shake the hand

of the invisible man

try kissing a mannequin


there’s a Christmas I

know

long, long, long time ago

she ran

yet the reindeer still caught her

and I could’a stopped it anytime I wanted to


the upside down

Sync of

you and me

how you used to fill in the blanks

before you left the pen on some weather beaten park bench

where it’s shiny attention

attracted a crow and his misses, they took it to the kids

to serve their scribbles


under the mistletoe

if somebody cares what you’re saying

just shut-up
