Tree Topper Fable by David S. Pointer

Tree Topper Fable

David S. Pointer

The fairy oil lamp fire of
1891 that the reindeer flew

through was nothing next
to recent school shootings
as Santa recalled old time
ice so hard to bust off the
Victorian brass sleigh bells
and wax angels guarding
Christmas ornament estates
sequestered in Antarctica
beneath the viruses and
ancient bacteria unknown
to his sleigh mounted elf,
new team and all melting
white midnights to come
shining like spun glass in
the pipe cleaner cold and
ever welcome hot chocolate

About the Author: David S. Pointer has recent work at “Working Class Heroes,” “Jellyfish Whispers,” “George Wilhite’s Horror Blog,” and others.
