Make Believe Days

Hallmark/Madison exploit
calender celebrations
I take no part in these ritualized markers
of "so what" events on
just another day on planet earth

we are gifted with spontaneous joy
every morning
don't leave it under the pillow
wear it as a banner
make a parade

the only real holiday is called
