Skip Halloween
and Thanksgiving.
Step over Christmas
and welcome January.

This year is over
for me. There has
been too much sadness.
It needs to be purged.

In January I
could start off fresh.
I'll get a new
desk calendar.

On New Year's Day
I'll get my drunk on.
I'll practice
sobriety a few

days later. I'll name
my dog January.
I'll change his name
the very next month.
