balloons at a party

another cocktail party
quicksand in the gut
     i keep the ball in the air

there is more you will miss
     than you will ever do

time to consider my thoughts
twisted up used feathers
pork barrel droppings
a couple of shopping carts
     dumped in the creek

this is not a ghetto
     beautiful people feel safe
an important aspect of marketing

i want suburban comfort in an urban setting
the cookie jar
     that all future cookie jars
     will be judged by

i’m not doing anything today
     including social cues
