Weather or Not

After tantalizing me with

A robin

It snowed eight inches last night, creating

A winter wonderland

Which I might have admired three months ago, even

Buckled on my cross-country skis and

Flung myself across the meadow working up heat.

But today, weeks

After I put away my boots

Stored my wooly leggings and

Kicked my mittens under the bed

Today I am not happy to relive

A white Christmas

There’s no tree

No lights

And most important

Not one fucking gift.
