The Party

by Angela Kempe


Latex balloons taped to white painted walls

Chips in red bowls and toothpicks in meatballs

Twisting and dipping pink crepe paper streamers

Strangely shaped packages inspiring toy dreamers

Bundles of freshly filled foil balloons

Floating up to the ceiling, but aimed for the moon

A centerpiece bursting like bright fireflies

And one child waiting with eager brown eyes
