Tinsel – John McAteer

cluttered days and 
hollow years
remnants burned
broken
scattered with the dreams
the demons
the death that hurt
that didn’t

just beyond the door
the moon
trapped inside a puddle
like a trophy
warning

now must be the time
to be old
when difficulties are pinned to walls
as decorations
tinsel
