Exile Christmases

DiscardsThe best part, the joy of Christmas, was always planning and making or selecting special little things to give to everyone. In my family of origin, we (those of us who could) bought “stocking stuffer” gifts for everyone.

“Exile Christmases”

the small gifts—
my poems and art—
you refused

am I not to give
gifts of my heart to you? or
just not at Christmas?

will ever
you love me enough
to be loved?
