320. the office party *

music & laughter

balloons & poppers


in plastic tumblers

crisps & nuts

mistletoe & halitosis

lipstick smudges

knowing glances

& furtive fumblings

and a snail’s trail

right across

the photocopier glass

& caught on CCTV no less


the socially inept

the lairy reps


 – there’ll be some bad heads

in the morning

and some smiles and regrets

I daresay.
