OURS written by Alyssa Brocker at Spillwords.com


written by: Alyssa Brocker



it’s when…
my step-dad and I
spend three hours
on the roof hanging lights.
stepping back,
admiring our work.
it’s never the biggest,
house on the block,
but it’s
my mom and brother,
baking in the kitchen.
it isn’t first class dinning,
it’s the best food I’ve ever tasted,
because it’s ours.
it’s my family,
all together,
singing carols off-key,
burning the sweet potatoes,
the cat knocking over the tree,
laughing till we can’t breathe,
having the best holiday
