this is not edgy or hip. ots. c4c. etc.

reindeer-drawn sleigh insurance

you will walk my kingdom.
you will know my struggle, and you will overcome.
you will be perfect, unwavering,
and child, you shall know no heaven.


i walked a block or two,
breathing in hope and cold smoke
and hearing corks popped on the tropical slopes.
six glasses of champagne, but he's just
looking for a way to cope, can't rob of a man of his poison.
can't rob a child of his toys. i spent last christmas alone.
i sat in central park, trees on skyline,
hands shaking, heart breaking, savior-like suicide.
i clutched a cross, embraced a man who died.
i felt hot tears on glass eyes, each one only made them shine,
like streetlights, like celebrating being alive
it was a wave of a straggling christmas parade
struggling down my pockmarked cheeks,
crawling like an ant across a big city street.
my flesh tells stories no man could carve,
i bear no lash marks or grand arc,
i am neither the salvation nor the saved.
i have laid no ink on no page,
i have only one breath for the rest of my days,
and though i come bearing no gifts,
i am a miracle, simply because i exist,
and so i wished myself the merriest christmas.

I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather. Not screaming in terror like his passengers.

This is my favorite part. The comparison is uncanny.

I've definitely heard this before...but it's a great line.



I really loved this piece. It is beautifully written and very philosophical.
