Hannukkah

I get Hannukkah presents for Christmas
so I know I didn’t make it home exactly
although I took a train, well meaning
and won a lot of gelt at dreidel
drunkenly and felt nothing-
that’s when I realized
I wasn’t where I should be.

it’s not too late, though
I will make it home this year
I promise. This is the year
it’ll happen, really.
