A Solo paper cup
Half-full of good cheer
Sits among the debris
Of another year
Auld Lang Syne
Echoes mournfully
From dusty crepe strewn
Rafters
Empty hall
Revelers floating
Down the street
As I sit and stare
Into the solitary cup
Half-empty of good cheer

Will old acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind...


Alicat


 As I sit here dimly thinking
Watching modem lights a-blinking
Churning out poetic hash.
Lord, in all Your piety,
Help me keep my sanity:
Please don't let the modem crash! --Alicat

Reminded me of the dull days when holidays are over.

Elizabeth

 Nail to the mast her holy flag,
Set every threadbare sail-
And give her to the god of storms,
The lightning and the gale!
-Oliver Wendell Holmes
