CJ’s Christmas morning

The Desk

This morning
I woke up ;
To a breeze for all to feel,
In a bed the size of queen.
I woke up;
To a feast for a feast of five
A plateful fit for four
A table meant for three
In this house the size of two’s
All for me;
for a set fit-
for one.


Christmas Eve

The Desk

He fixes his tie –

brushes his coat.


Drove down the metro

on Christmas eve.


Picked up a present from a nearby store-

head straight to his favorite café.


The waiter greets, so he let out a smile –

and asked,         table for one please.
