Dear Marcy
while I would love to move you
to a castle in Italy
I find that it will not be possible
at least not this year
and Marcy
you don’t have to write in crayon
I know you’re 25 years old
I’m Santa
I know everything
Dear Scott
I do not think your third grade teacher
is a zombie
and I don’t know of any zombie testing kit
that is available
If your teacher’s skin or arms start to fall off
tell your mother
how about a bike
Dear Tiger
I will bring cans of tuna
I’m sorry the people you live with
don’t like the odor
I’m not sure if you will be able to open the cans
but I’m hopeful you’ll come up with something
since cats are clever and quite innovative
Dear Susan
you can be Santa next year
just fill out the papers I’ll leave under the tree
along with the books you wanted
mail the papers back to the North Poll
in care of me
and of course you can sleep in the barn
with the reindeer
but the house is warmer
you don’t have to decide until you get here
I hope you like cookies

I’m an artist, a writer, a vegetarian, an animal rights activist, and quite a few other things as well. I love books, cats, philosophy, good conversation, Chicago and the arts. So my blog is full of bits and pieces but it’s the bits and pieces that make life interesting to me. You can read more of my writing at Rethinking Life
