Blue January

Blue January
17 days avoiding the inevitable
but with the mid-holiday lull comes
the retreat. How can I be the woman

You fell in love with in September?
Now I am as flimsy as
a lantern, paper for a spine

Sure, there are things to look forward to:
the smell of burning paper
my boyfriend’s hand in mine
at the movies

but they are like raindrops on the leaves of a dying plant
shiny, rolling and about to
drop
