Mikaela Castledine #339 Christmas has got away from me

Christmas has got away from me
she says
and don't I know it
fast it races on crooked legs
nimble for one so unwieldy
dodging and diving

Refuse to try to outrun
in such an undignified lather
it will wait eventually
lolling pleased with itself
against a sunny wall

Pretend not to notice
walk on by
twitch your fingers close by your thigh
see if it follows
