#2,582 There will be swillings

Mike Bell/ December 25, 2022/ www.mikebellpoems.com

There will be swillings
of seasonal swallows
[sips of inappropriate
stuff on puffed lips] &
a plumping of breasts –
their gifts of hand-me-
down insecurities & of
self-love – They’ll take
rather than give up as
each year shunts off &
less are loved [await a
year on Yuletide’s bull
& lists will be shorter]
