How would you write it


the beautiful
Christ child

spitting image of mama mary
(do images really spit?)

pretty, smart, kind
expected of, more than most
measured more than the rest

red and green
colors of season reason
how about purple goddess gold

and three wise women 
riding jackass chauvinist pigs
side saddle, not, and wearing long pants 

bearing gifts of
peace, love and conscience
sweeping war dominant victory-overs away

under the tree of life
wicker baskets full of enough
for everyone sharings and how are you


like it matters
every day lines on faces
drawn by demands disappearing

with the star
as everyone is
born to be

children of the lessor god
developmentally disabled

mother, daughter and holy ghostess
have a world
to bonnet with perfection

tug at 
popcorn string
diaper change

for plattered heads
by tears

I should think so

sometimes thinking hurts
and probably should more often

stir thoughts - the gift you give

expect nothing less
 speaks the christ child 
   than to be that which is you

die for it and be complete
