All the Waterford crystal and vintage porcelain cats

you kept in your cupboard didn’t mean much

once the lights went out and our mouths became hectic.

When the trees blew down and the candles were reduced

to wax puddles, your Swarovski collectible pandas were

crushed like baby aspirins. Those things were insured, right?
