Clusterfuck Christmas

Tangled lights and curse
words-faking Christmas spirit
just like all the rest.

His brown bag bottle
Her passive aggressive cold
silence. The tree tilts.

Watching the movies
Television families
made it look easy.

Dysfunction hidden
beneath holiday sweaters
and Christmas card words.

I questioned it then
and I still question it now
Why do we bother?

Stress over sugar
cookies and the perfect gift?
Things that don’t matter?
