“Into the Warmth of a Cold Night”

Arctic chill in the castle
So I venture forth
Into the warmth of a cold night
To buy a Christmas Eve Dinner
Under the strangely warm glare
Of florescent tubes

A stranger's smile
Brings me back to humanity

In a cold park
I have my Christmas Eve dinner
With the dark night
As my convivial companion
I toast distant friends across oceans
With my can of cold beer

Happy Holidays my Friends
Thank you for being there

All I can do...
All we can do
Is our best....
