Today is the final day of 2014, and tomorrow is 2015. At least, that's how it is in Atlanta, Georgia.

As such, this week's prompt is to write a party poem. A lot of stuff happens at parties. There are people who are the life of the party, who crash the party, and who feel left out of the party.

Here’s my attempt at a Party Poem:

“the three-year-old dance”

she says she wants to party,
but i don't know how. i don't
dance or drink or feel relaxed
around strangers, but she says

she wants to party. she says
she needs to party right now
& i realize she doesn't need
to party; she means potty.
