Pouring over the details of the past year,
Looking through all the happy times,
Making out the annual cards.
Picking pictures with the best smiles,
While knowing sometimes they were a mask,
But hoping to force my way through.
The address book lays open
And pens scattered looking for the right color.
Scripting out each address by hand.
Texting a few, remembering they moved.
Stuffing, stuffing, hoping for no paper cuts.
Sticking little otter stamps to the corner.
All that’s left, seal and put them to post.
Greetings to all this happy holiday season!
