After the Day,

the cost sinks in

and payment plans

place themselves.

 

It’s a new year

less dollars

less heart-

Somehow,

the day after

needs to be

named.

 

Before is -Eve

as if her gentleness

and apple error

made it before.

 

Let’s call it -adam

Christmas Adam

to realize our error

lie about the cost

and head out anyway.
