  • Warming your hands
    By a crackling kiva fire
    Smelling of cedar
    In an ancient adobe
    In Taos Pueblo
    On Christmas Eve
    Just before the Virgin
    Is paraded past
    Towering bonfires
    Of epic proportions
    To the deafening beat
    Of countless rifle blasts
    Courtesy of fierce-eyed
    Tribe members
    Aiming skyward
    Just a few feet away
    Should be on everyone’s
    Bucket list
