New Year

A new year has fallen
with the snow of
the just begun season.

Winter, a week old.
The new year, new.

Who decided that
this calendar
made sense?

The world is dead
beneath a white veil.
The holiday cheer
will wane in the coming
days, as harsh winter digs in.

Happy new year.
Bundle up and
beware the snows.
Don’t fret.
the world’ll start afresh
in a few months time.
