Advent Valentine

Now reindeer and snowmobiles
are hurtling toward the cliff
in a game of chicken
where in 983 AD Vikings
could be found all
the way from Istanbul
to Iceland I try
to remember the Ireland
of my youth when
holiness was dying
but would soon become
a business like Delphi
how our tools become
our masters
but my money’s
still on Donner
and Blitzen
