2013.12.13 Happy New Year!

 Everything New

I want to be here
just with you
we two.
That’s what olding peeps do,
is it not?
As they wait for the chicken pot pie
to stew
and gaze at their tiny fake tree, red
and blue,
Then make a salad, green, fresh
and new.
I love you my love
they say with their eyes
while young TV celebrants
hug, hop and hoot
for everything new, everything new—
we too.
