holiday greetings

are latent through the year's worth of days

but as human kind cannot bear

too much reality

(like not surviving a look

at the Divine Face)

it is ordained that this time of year

we can access these permanent states of being

peace joy happiness and even they are nowhere near

the Actuality of the One

as long as we wear these earthly skins

and the raiments of other realities

these approximations are the closest we'll get

to the Final Destination we seek

itself a poor approximation of reality

because it is always around us

and we'll shed skin after skin layer after layer

until we emerge finished into it...
