Where the Stars Shine

An accident
of winning and
then being sent
to La La Land
where dreams come true
for me and you
while sleep is deep

Epiphany

On the twelfth day
there were three kings
which in some way
led to five rings
(or for the kooks
led to five toques
Bob and Doug’s brand)

Epiphany is the day the three wise men or kings arrived at the stable where the baby had been born. It is said to have occurred twelve days after the birth, thus giving us the Twelve Days of Christmas, and is traditionally celebrated on 6 January. When my mother was a child where she grew up it was also the day Christmas gifts were exchanged.
