Soiree

Soiree We Are “odd.” Invite us, And we will come To your grand soiree And mingle with your friends, Speaking our uncensored minds The nicey-nice types always frown Oh no, it’s getting late! Nine-thirty! Time to wrap it up. Thanks for having us! So, now you have a decision to make: It’s a simple question of values Ours we showed by being ourselves Yours will come out in the wash Were we embarrassing? Status unconscious? Does that matter? We won’t wait By the Phone. Ebb And flow Of friendships Just like the tides In sometimes, then out No sense in fighting it We’d rather not hold water That wants to return seaward Not selling or buying, just being Popularity? Sounds like a lot of work Foregone, weighty codpiece of normalcy Just waves, rippling on midnight seas Flow towards us if we suit you, But only if. Happy with Each other’s company Or even my own E v a n e s c e n t precious time, spend with care. 5/5/16 © Thomas W. Quigley
