Hear Those Sleigh Bells Ring-a-Ling

Purple Skies on the 407
a Christmas Tree of a city
blazing and terrifying
the lights stretch on its plastic limbs
Walmart on a Black Friday
like angry cottagers pinching heels
with shopping carts
a seething race to the checkout
A minivan derails

swings through an intersection
thuds into the snowbank
All because of the falling snow

sprinkling on the passenger seat window
The child dreams of Father Christmas
