when i fell

at the end of the party

i tottered up the stairs

after putting my shoes back on,

you waited patiently as i did

I wasn’t expecting you to,

everyone else was already out of the basement

we all said our goodbyes-

in my pleasantly drunken fog,

i held on to you longer than i should have

you turned me upside down that night

when you picked me up

but it was a strong hold even before then
