“Just some sad X-mas poems”

More than coffee or peanut butter 
 Or Big Bang returns all night through 
 more than a warm shower 
 or 100 laps in a loop 
 more than some decent toothpaste 
 or a couple of great books to read 
 would be for someone to say 
 “hey how are you doing, 
 are you OK? “
 Merry Xmas 

 My inside bars are green 
 so I pretend to be in the forest 
 there’s predators lurking 
 big &small, gotta keep your wits about you 
 the climate is unpredictable 
 it just takes one miscalculation 
 and your ass is lost  
I scrounge what I can find to eat 
 keep my shadows close to me 
 the jungle is an unforgiving place 
 such is the BOP
