THE BELATED CHRISTMAS SING* took
place tonight, with the sisters and brothers-in-law
and aunties and uncles and cousins and nieces and nephews
(and the grandson of a cousin--whatever relationship title that is!)
of the yard man.
It's a Christmas tradition that stretches back
nearly three decades, all of us scrunched
together and singing our hearts out,
fueled by the smorgasbord of food
we've just wolfed down.
*It's always belated, traditionally belated,
supposed to be belated!
