impending party

-this is not the first party
and will not be the last
i think
as flies and birds flit by my
on the porch.

sweep and mop the
rearrange the chairs,
read some magazine waiting.

am i nervous?
not dreadfully.

what a sunnyshining day
as the objects become real,
the park lush and populated,
the day briskly unfolding.

will there be flag burnings
and other sketchy shit?
stomping and drunken thisandthat?
will i crack up
or love it?
will we all be
will we get along,
are there grudges?
how late?
as night will creep dusty
and then lush a ton of cigarettes,
six beers each,
a fastball.
crepuscular crowded bodies in small rooms
and tumbling books into wine glasses filled with
homemade hooch.

all in the anticipation.
a clever typed manifesto
hope and anxiety,
a spring transitioning lazily into summer,
chipped flooring
love and revolt
and oozing subtle sex.
the crowded backyard
the crowded rooms,
tumbling into each other.
