The snow had not yet arrived;
we sneaked out, into the sun-lit forest.
Magdelana guided the way down the invented garden path to the fortress
I can reveal nothing more.
It is secret.
Deep in the heartwoods.
Kids in pajamas (said with British accent);
tooth breeshed, upon our favourite hygienist's recommend.
Hopped in the automobile for surprise trip down
Pulled into the drab house neighborhood turned
illuminated and alive with creatures from the Poles.
Zooey Deschanel & M. Ward dueting with us.
Slow drive, caroling to us.
home to bed.
