in the party room,

in the party room,
there are waiters making
wontons in one booth,
waiters folding napkins
into perfect triangles
in another, and you
alone in the
corner, carving
flowers out of the
morning’s turnips
as if setting them

if youtube videos
are to be
believed, one day
soon, elephants
will be able to
carve out their own
from the
wood they drag
through the forest
floor, manned by
boys on the edge
of manhood, tweeting
their latest status
