Christmas Eve Shopping

He cut
a sorry figure in the flurry of the street
he knew
she wouldn't like it whatever he picked
he imagined
her saying ‘thank you’
with that smirk upon her lips

He hated
Christmas shopping and all that it entailed
he’d rather
wrestle Amazonian crocodiles or eat garlic snails.
