Visits and Stockings


She had a hernia rupture,

she told me,

so He could not get on her bed –

i did not tell her he wasn’t allowed – there was no point –

i simply got a chair,

and He sat there,

as we pondered important questions,


if we put up one stocking for Santa to fill and we have two feet,

Should dogs get two stockings because they have four feet?
