Larry Bob Phillips: Tea With Santa
December 18, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
A gift neath a pine tree, an offer of tea
There won’t be no red pants, there won’t be no knee.
A Christmas tradition and a furbelowed cookie
Larry Bob on the wall for you to come look-see.
A holiday detour, a legend suggestive
A high desert ramble sure to be festive.
We’ll have a warm fire in a can on the sidewalk
To gather us round for love laden talk.
Alluded to once, tradition’s tamale
And we hope she can come — anthropologist Polly.
small array is the place, 3 to 5 is the hour
Come feel the love, come touch the power.
We hope you can get here, it won’t be routina
December 18 in sweet Magdalena!
