Christmas Morning

I woke up
to take the dog out
my eyes still slightly
sealed by sleep’s adhesive

No excitement flopped
in my belly as I approached
the living room

No illumination from a tree
or candles in windows

No evidence of Santa’s visit-
I was not good nor was I bad

I just couldn’t bring myself
to believe in much of anything
this year.
