this time of year...

one could think
it would bring out
the best in our fellow
man -- compassion
should never
come at a price
neither should
basic human needs
as well -- so many
broken individuals
shattered like a mix
bag of assorted
christmas bonbons
crashing all over
a freshly bleached
floor -- small pieces
of spiced candies 
-- will reveal massive
emotion -- the type
where a human
heart wants
to burst
with poignant
expression
but is frightened
to take that specific
risk
