Hello world … you merry-go-round

Hello world … you merry-go-round
(What have you got for me?)

The old year is bulldozed away-- 
good riddance --
and the new one rings in 
like a vaudeville curtain call.

I couldn’t keep up anyway.
I like the old ways too. Like you --
like consideration and caring 
and cozy blankets. 

You know, like when there is a class act
in the poor and dignified as well as 
in the privileged who sacrifice
anonymously and with grace. 

Let the winter skies stay awhile
hovering overhead and directing 
our gazes closer to where
we see each other, really see 

ourselves in each other.
