Does Christmas still exist (a poem)

I wonder beneath
All of the glint
And glitter
Underneath the wrappings
and freshly fallen snow
Buried deep in
smoking chimneys
and lights flickering
for repetitive attention…
beneath all of this
does Christmas
still exist?

Beneath stars
Burned out brightly
flares in the night
beacons of eternity
if we only took the
Time every so often
to look up.
Does Christmas
still exist here?

Is it lost?
Buried deep?
Are our eyes
have we stopped
Looking up?
Does Christmas
truly exist?
