The Christmas Spirit: Ch. 3After a few hours of waiting for the doctor then going through a thorough check-up to make sure he was physically and mentally all right, Miles was finally discharged from the hospital. It was now 7 p.m. and he walked solemnly on the sidewalk, weaving through people running here and there with large bags and wondering why the shops were so crowded this late in the day.
'Oh wait,' he mused, 'it's Christmas Eve today, isn't it? Damn.'
Scowling to himself, he needed to get away from all the people, so he crossed the street (making sure there were absolutely no cars to hit him) and began walking through another city square. Miles looked around to see mostly couples and families gathered there, chatting away happily to one another. That turned his mood even fouler.

You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
