It's not the magic
I put up my Christmas tree this year.
It twinkles brilliantly, brightly and I like it.
In a small corner of my cynical body
lives a little girl who still finds it magical,
though the wonder's been wonky for years -
God knows where it went - and yet
I spent money on the spectacle this time
around. So, I guess I've found that I can enjoy
the magical, though know it's not the magic.
You have to make that yourself.
