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

time is a trapper,
checking on us for signs of life
every other hour,

maintaining best practices
until it’s time to release us

fold as much

unfold.
when we break
bread together
for the first
time, we won’t
know the difference,
and it’ll be as
much of a release
