Poeming: Christmas

The prompt today at Robert Lee Brewer's Poetic Asides blog was 
Teenager. This is one of the poems I wrote.

Christmas.

No one was celebrating
at my house
No garland,
no tree
no music.
But I, determined,
walked to the
grocery store
parking lot,
bought a
bedraggled
remaining
tree,
carried it home
alone
Set it up with
lights and ornaments
unwilling to allow
the darkness there
to
claim my
fifteen-year-old
Christmas.
