  • Nevermind the bad,
    the oversleeping, the stain,
    the discord at work

    Her grumpy mother,
    The obnoxious kid in the
    theater, the nausea

    Because the snow shined
    like crushed diamonds in the glow
    of the full white moon

    And she was flawless
    in the faint colorful glow
    of the stereo

    Because half these things
    we will remember next year
    And half we will not.
