(a casually buzzed lament)

So it takes

a rainy Christmas Eve

 to rediscovedr Li Po;

to throw one back

with the great;

raise a drink

to a new drinking partner.

And it seemed likely

to garner a slight buzz

and a late night rush

as I step outside

still barefoot;

toes sinking into cool mud

and the ground remains

unwilling to freeze.

A possum is on the lam 

as I cautiously step along

and press flesh onto wet grass.

I toss a Kaiser roll

after the scurrying possum

and laugh at December 

and the early days of winter.
