The Lovers’ Almanac 25 December – Happy Holidays Y’all! – Waitin’ – art by Hans von Bartels

Dear Zazie Lee,  Happy Holidays from all of us at the ranch.  Mac Tag is headed off to the mountains.  Jett is spendin’ it with his kids.  Me, I am stayin’ here at the ranch.  Hope you have a Merry Christmas!  Rhett

Dear Muse,

cold, clear night walkin’
out to the edge of the caprock
under a star strewn sky
raked by the wind
standin’, waitin’
for somethin’, a sign
i imagine you comin’ closer,
your hair minglin’ with the wind
and the dark becomes desire
the nearness, of you as I stand
on this lonely night waitin’
why do I believe you will come
out of nowhere
why with all that you can have
would you come only because I am here
