Christmas Eve

We fixed our fairy,
sparkling in sequinned gown.

Let there be lights.
Dad tore his few remaining hairs, drove
jehu-like to town.

Returned.  Worked, twisting wire with clumsy hands.
Then light there was.

Yet, at Midnight Mass, his fingers
danced across organ keys
swelling our church with glorious sound.
