Solitary Plague-Time Christmas in a Studio Apartment

written by: Linda Marie Hilton

 

If space is tight, then
Hang a wreath, noel greetings
It broadly bequeaths;

Dress it up grandly
Varied greens, very berry
Merry cones ribboned;

Single ornament
Centered amongst greenery
Brings many gazes;

Each painted orb brings
Memories crowded into
All noel tide days;

Social distancing
Our year end fancy fetes does blight,
Parts close kith and kin;

So hang noel cheer
In tight quarters and spread it
Six feet far and wide.

A native New Englander, Linda Marie Hilton moved to NYC in her early twenties, her dream to become an orchestral musician. Starving, she began working as an accounting clerk, returned to night school, working her way up to audit staff. Displaced by computerization, she moved out west, starving again, she became a poet.
