~Mardi Gras~Fat Tuesday~The Big Easy~

Mardi Gras

skies hued

yellow, purple, green aglow

The sounds clamoring

Fighting to outdo

each musical note

Debris in the streets

Faces smeared

Drunken flow

Dancing in flight

Cheap trinkets flying

Dashing, fighting, grinding

And then it fades

Leaving, lingering

Till next year we float~

Not for reproduction
