Some XMAS Meter Reader Redux

This simple sample
this wounded turn
a cold up
to nail it warm
a scribble in a
sweater necessary
to report spring’s
twin,
in full inverse
lowers my appreciation
a degree or two
each day
as I now view
sequel as
foreshadow

and when bright lights
artificial the coming long
nights

(a mass for faith in peer
pressure)

I string along with
the blink and the
glow

and tinsel
and toast
and cheer
homes that
hum electric
churning gigawatts
to terminal,
with that heavy static
smell of life support
