Sonnets for Ashley Faye: Christmas 2020

Christmas this year, the world is shut inside.
No gatherings of family and friends,
no feasting with a ham and chocolate pie.
Just sit indoors and wait for it to end.

But baby, if I must be stuck at home,
I’m happy that I'm stuck at home with you.
We’re isolated, but we’re not alone,
for we are two in one and one in two.

So Christmas this year, let us stay inside.
We’ll drink hot cocoa sitting by the fire,
we’ll roast a bird and make our own damn pie,
we’ll have our Christmas as our hearts desire.

The world can fall apart if we’re together,
so long as I'm with you, now and forever.
