Taking down tinsel

and other decorations

in January

is the thing to do, perhaps.

Certain poignancy

can be evoked if they’re left,

dusty though they be.

They speak of the hopes one had

about friends and family-

if unfulfilled!

How sad to dispense with those

festoons of good will.

When you vacuum the glitter,

you eradicate your dreams.
