These days, Black Friday really lasts a week
but I haven't bothered to write out a list--
You cannot find the things I want in a store.

The sound of a rejected embrace
is the same as the shatter of a broken bulb
or a house burning down on Christmas morning.

There is a name for the way 
strings of holiday lights blur out of focus
when you watch someone you love walk away.
Poetry is so much easier to write when it's not assigned for our course. -_-

edit: Wow, thanks for the DD! :icondweebdanceplz:

Bokeh just makes me think of hipsters photos.
This is much more cathartic than anything from instagram ;P

Congrats on the DD btw.

"A Japanese term for the subjective aesthetic quality of out-of-focus areas of a photographic image" which refers to the final stanza.

Thank you!
