Christmas Green

I want to hurry and be old
so I can read all day into the night
be so old I have nothing left to do
but remember life lived    write
about all those people forgiveness forgot and
all those moments too stubborn to be lost   
in the carpet or swept under the bed.
I want to hurry and be old so I can be dead
ask God to His or Her face how He or She can make
some days so beautiful like this full of love
and snow and warmth in the soul and then
go across the road skip across the sea fill
some man’s pockets so he can kill
the beasts beneath him that helped get him that fine coat.
