To celebrate the New Year
I shall eat some collard greens and black eyed peas.

And, in keeping with burning
what you don’t want to bring into the new year
I shall grab a red hat
and spit on it, and stomp on it, and cut it into pieces,
light those pieces on fire and fan the flames.

The night before, I shall have the sweetest kiss with the sweetest man
and I shall make a toast with mulled cider and bourbon.
We’ll sing Auld Lang Syne at the top of our lungs
With emphasis on the “and never brought to mind” part.

So long 2020. Welcome 2021. Look! Hope is peeking over the horizon.

Here’s to you, all of my friends in search of peace and justice.
Keep wearing the mask. Keep keeping on.
I shall wrap my arms around you and hold you tight in this new year.
