by Masago: Rengay #17 (Dec 23-29, 2007), Verses 1-6 (of 6)
Snowy evening — a Christmas card for mailing, last year.
The party guests leave — she wins another gin.
He says he knows / the one who gave the gift — missing nametag.
Returned gamecard — the one he really wants, / is not in stock.
Hockey card collection, all but Wayne Gretzky's*.
The mailman / comes around early — credit card bills.
