merry christmas dear

|   jay's deer, paper found at the portland bins, 1911 postcard from my great grandmother, thread, oil paint, water, ink (14" x 14")

could they have been hand in hand all night.
it was hard to believe
held tightly with eyes pressed shut.
i'm unrecognizable to anyone who will ever look.
it's 8:46pm and i think you're mine
but our minds pronounce the word differently.
so i'll just keep holding your hand.
