Doves dangle in shop windows.
Sale! Get in the Spirit!
Special deals on fans to blow a wind in any upper room.
Spicy dinners to give everyone a tongue of fire.
Songs with lyrics no one can quite understand
but if asked they say
“She rides a Honda in Shandala.”
Kids dressed as holy ghosts
sing Happy Birthday to god-knows-who.
And in Peter’s honor, the drinking starts at 9 a.m.
