A Christmas Carol
Sounds of bumping and stumbling. A knock.
But this was on glass. "Fire!" someone yells.
Lights turn on and we all have to "Get up!"
Winter. Little to no clothes. The night smells.
Fear keeps us from moving out of danger
and we're carried to safety by strangers.
Watching the snow sparkle quells my anger.
Angel-eyes twinkle, fill me with laughter.
