collect the stories
and choose recipes
and remember the important things
like trees

next year I will have
forgotten again
but I like all the rituals
I can do in my own home

come and eat and fill
your cup and pour it out again

they tried to kill us
we’re alive
let’s eat

the trees will still be there
outside the window
working on new leaves

fending off and fending for
and finding ways of being
of some use to somebody

there’s a path to be found
between each alarming thought
towards appreciation

and maybe even towards action
