that this is the hardest time of year for many people in my community. that many of my friends will never be welcome “home” for the holidays. that I have friends who have children who will never know their grandparents. that if I went home I would be the only “single” cousin at my grandmother’s house. that I am not single. that there were too many years I did not say, “i am not single.” that for many people, going home is activism. that it’s ok to be “too tired.” that my home is a warm home. that last night my girlfriend was stringing garland around our stairwell. that she made a gluten-free-egg-free-dairy-free version of my grandmother’s banana chocolate chip cookies. that my grandma knitted the best mittens. that “silent night” is playing on repeat on the stereo. that I keep daring myself to go “poetry caroling.” that I am too shy. that I keep thinking: this christmas is gonna be the first christmas someone’s grandfather gets his grandchild’s pronouns right. that I keep thinking: next christmas my girlfriend and I are gonna make peanut brittle for my dad. that christmas lights are bad for the environment and I can’t stop hanging them all over my living room. that I miss nativity scenes, but not the church. that i miss the snow in december in maine. that there are too many people alone tonight. that people say, “merry christmas.” that my friend misspelled “marry” as “merry” in her book of poetry. that i wish everyone in the world could get merried. that joy would come caroling at everyone’s door. that this is the hardest time of year for many people in my community. that leaf. that leaf that makes the table bigger. that’s something i wish i could be.
