And a chocolate racing car
Amongst the lecture notes and receipts.
The virgin Mary and the little boy Jesus
Are sheltered by a request to renew the
An Angel is propping up a
Visa Statement, offering it
A better balance.
Sunlight sings through the lens
Of a Glass Star of Bethlehem
Shimmering on your Gloss Face
Framed by plastic.
This chaos, this struggle
A moment suspended between
The triumph of the Christmas things
Over the reluctant recession of all
That doesn’t matter any more.
