it was christmastime but i swear it felt like spring
home again and all brand new, i loved you,
my novelty of a best friend,
with every iota of spirit i could muster that year.
how our conversations rambled and never ceased
despite the crunchy gears of time and technology
and how i grinned
through mugs of minted coffee
at every song we sang
feet propped up on the table
next to the crackling little woodstove
undressing a perfect tangerine
giddy to the point of hysteria
just because of you
and your sweet-sour stories
of being free.

When your with your beloveds, especially during the holidays, time seems irrelevant. Time seems like something we were bound unto for a while but now those fetters are loose. This is perfect, my friend. Your imagery will always be exceptional. Coffee, tangerines, carols, and "crunchy gears of time"—how much better can it get? I reward you with five humble stars. Not the best I can do. You certainly deserve more. I'd better start harmonizing: Christmas is just around the corner. Doesn't seem that way but it is.
