“december 1st

as we kissed good-bye
you made a little frown.
now christ’s lights are
twinkling all over town.
the cornstalks are broken
in the field, broken and brown.
the pond at the year’s end
turns her gray eyelid down.
christ’s lights are
twinkling all over town…”

-anne sexton, “eighteen days without you.”
