keeping up with the joneses


each year she is there
climbing her ladder
creating bright and beautiful

we are simple
a candle in each window
we like it that way

beating the storm
she choses wisely
works patiently unraveling lights

sometimes she replaces
floundering strings
but, she does replace

of course i joke
there is no competition
only admiration

my only wish
to live across the way
to enjoy full on light and cheer
