The month of lowest expectations,
post-Christmas/New Year, post-relations
descending loud with festive news -
their operations, grudges, views
on megashamble politics,
our leaders being thick as bricks,
TV (its highs and lows), the weather -
and ‘how nice’ to be all together.
So, January, poor preparation
for self and soul examination,
for Resolutions (yet again)
to minimise the Old Year’s pain.
It’s not your fault: you look both ways,
and both have short and clouded days.
We lay the blame on you despite
your instinct towards stronger light.
