The Party’s Over

— A moonlit mountain overlooking an American middle-class
21st century, post-party, pre-cleanup. . . 

Bald Mountain’s decked
in fog fur tonight tight as a second skin
accessorized with pinetop moles
scattered here and there

They break through like remnant
antipasto broccoli bud florets
caught in spent pools of
sour cream with chives
that’ve been dipped and dipped in,
and dipped in again.
