The priviledged pointlessness of being there

to blend in
and stick out
like a lent dinner jacket at La Luxury Gourmet
take a sip of this
and a bite of that
and bounce our eyeballs off your head

You wore your tiredness like wet wool
to numb you
to miss goody goody lemon drops
who evaporated out of your way
to spear fruit with a toothpick
and ripple laughter through the room

    It sounds like a woman who is running away from a crowd, with all that is there at a party. Nancy
