Mount Pleasant

Tethered to a liquid mooring,
Bodies moving, night brings
Men striding head up beside
Gold hoops and little black dresses.
All the children are back home
With YouTube Blippi and LEGO blocks,
So the good wine flows by the
Succulent harbor, torches come
To life along April avenues and
Blue and white banners flutter in
A wind too strong for tall heels on
Wooden docks.
