It Was Christmas

It was Christmas Day
on your face;
tugging at the corners of your mouth
with its plump fingers.

Your mouth bled
from all the stretching
and I wiped the blood on my cheeks
in Santa circles.

And with your tears
I cleaned my teeth
and washed your shoes
ready for the Boxing Day Parade.
