Tiger / Christmas Eve

there’s no escaping
Christmas Eve

it follows on the heels of
innocuous events like
autumn equinox

you can hide
under the bed,
swim through crocodiles
across the estuary,
climb a tree and
not come down

but Christmas Eve can
hear you breathing
it will trail you
like a tiger

it will catch you
in its claws
