A Christmas poem 2011

This is from Brautigan's "Rommel Drives on Deep into Egypt."  I always think of this poem at this time of year and fantasize about having Christmas dinner somewhere overlooking the Pacific.

Abalone Curry
I have Christmas dinner every year with Michael
and he always cooks abalone curry.  It takes
a long time because it tastes so good and the afternoon
travels pleasantly by in his kitchen that is halfway
    between India and Atlantis.

Happy holidays, everyone.
