One Tree's Night

T'was the last night in November, the eve of December. Just a tree's evening in Downtown Culver City. One that all will remember.

Just another Friday night in Culver City,

At Ugo, eating and laughing with friends.

Meet cutes, awkward guys being witty,

Noting singles, lovers, and trends.

A short walk to Parcel B,

Wobbly kids on the ice rink,

Next door was Delancey,

To find a tree for me,

I did not think.

But a little turkey tree I found.

Sitting there, short and round.  


On foot, without a car,

We carried the tree,

Since my home is not far,

Carried it around the City.

First stop was the lion from Oz.

Right by Culver Hotel.

At the crosswalk we paused,

Ok, jaywalked, just don't tell!

Needed to stop again at Ugo.

This time for a scoop of gelato.  


Out of cash?

That's ok.

Took a quick dash,

To BoA .

Stopped to see Matt G. at Seventy7,

For a 'hello' and a quick drink,

Jack 'n' Coke sounded like heaven.

Aghast! A private party, I did not think!

So off we continued on our route,

But first window-shopped for a suit.  


Continuing on our way,

"Christmas Carol: Twist Your Dickens"

So excited I must say!

At Kirk Douglas there are always good pickins'.

Last stop was Sony,

As energy was getting low.

But this the tree must see,

The famous rainbow.

What a wonderful evening for me!

A holiday night in Culver City with my turkey tree.
