Christmas is over

Christmas is over.
Take the ornaments off of the tree.
The glass globes.
The tin soldiers.
The silver stars.
And wrap them well before you put them back in the box.
So that they don’t break. And we’ll have to buy new ones. Again.
Pull off the strings of lights and wrap them around the cardboard tubes.
Otherwise, they’ll get tangled. And we’ll have to buy new ones. Again.
All that’s left is the angel on the top.
Whisper the prayer to release him.
So he can fly back up to Heaven.
We’ll catch another angel for next year’s tree.
