The Party

We stood on the outskirts
watching the party disperse.

People reveling in the overall excitement
already reliving the moments
found to be most memorable
like they were categorizing
placing memories in great file cabinets
that might
at best
be locked away.

Forgotten until
in some familiar state
their presence re-emerged
(an acquaintance)
happily met
in the long hours
of the night.
