Poetry Friday: Party

I have three sections for today's post.  First a poem.

background music

hubbub in the room
behind the door
she flounces through
blatantly pink and sufficiently glittered
she holds the party
on the tip of her finger
her spellbound laughter
draws the room inward
she is the background music
the open window of air
they're all caught in her pupils
locked in to her
every movement flows
like newspaper in the wind

Second a photo montage.

Pajama Party

Dance Party

Cocktail Party

Political Party

Geek Party

Third a video.

Philadelphia Story Jimmy Stewart and Carey Grant

(It was pointed out to me that the video I had posted wasn't working - use this link instead.  Sorry about that.)

The way I've been feeling, I couldn't really get past Pajama Party, but I admire and appreciate your sense of humor.

I've never been much of a party person. It's not pleasant to arrive in middle age and discover that the social anxiety that drove me to drink at age 13 still has such a powerful grip on me. Older, I find it wiser to avoid such situations.

That clip was so short! A teaser! I'll have to get ahold of that movie now. It's been so long, I can't remember it all.

clearly the geek party crashed the cocktail party and swiped their stemware...and probably composed super awesome beverages too.

De, in truth the extent of my partying you can see here - party of one. Ha. Well, we do actually go to dinner parties for the holidays, but only with my husband's family really.

Jaded, definitely the geek party would be concocting the better drinks, hence the slightly more dizzy look. =)
