Ode to Mardi Gras

I set my alarm for 8:30 A.M.
to adequately prepare for the self-induced mayhem
and proceeded to do more shots than the rest of them.

I found what I thought to be a green gown on the ground
and wrapped it all around me and wore it like a princess crown
until later when everyone told me I found it in a trash mound.

I missed my friend and her mom simultaneously flashing passersby
and I missed going out at night
because my eyes could barely open and my throw up made me cry.

But at least you came to 9th Street and surprised me
and let me try to attack you in a vacant Porta Potty
and - in celebration of Amy's birthday - bought us all Mom's Deli.
