the last 4 days

Giving thanks at a feast-filled table
Filled with sadness over the needs of the globe
Making Advent wreaths with kids of all ages
Turning the pages of Vanier and Loeb

Cats purring with delight
Tuna cans stacked high to recycle
Celebrity Taboo into the night
Neighborhood rides on my bicycle

Watching the Horns overcome their fears
Sorting and shredding papers from years ago—
Which to keep and which to throw
A production of Rent moves me to tears

Telling my story in Español
Enchiladas and theology at El Mirador
Mixing pumpkin and spice cake in a large bowl
Trying to stifle my false need for more
