247. Christmas in the Desert

We shake our heads
at the Christmas displays
in the grocery store.

Some people mock
those who play carols
in the December summer
in the barren desert.

We struggle to feel festive
when the days grow hotter
and we're all so far
from home.

But we can't help but smile
at the shrub on the side of the highway
that someone covered with tinsel
to reflect the gold of our headlights.
