Christmas Box



“And then the presents, after the Christmas box.”

Dylan Thomas - “A Child’s Christmas in Wales”




And its true,

everything does fit together.

I believe that.


That is faith,

poetry, politics, religion,

becoming a father.


It’s a sort  of gliding through life,

knowing that there will be enough time

and money

                   for Christmas to happen.


A confidence, faith, love, joy, happiness.


An opposition,

An endurance.


Another 100 years.

another generation,

another Christmas box.
