Where in the new year
will I find a resting place—
beneath an old pine?
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
In my thoughtless state
not even new year’s prospects
can enlarge my soul.
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
too much alcohol
ushering in the new year—
my woozy footsteps
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
to the left and right
as the new year approaches
uptight suspicions
