birthday poem

I rarely write poetry, but I did jot down this little thing directly following a dear friends' birthday party.  this is pretty much the only place I would ever want to publish it.  


A dozen mostly jewish girls,
a viking, and her troll
chirp 'happy birthday'
as boys in band vans
roll down wet streets.

The viking leans down
to tell me,
"I don't have a jealous bone in my body"
and lazily kisses her troll, darts her eyes,
and bites her lip.

We smother Jonathon
with kisses and shots
but the poor boy
never knows what he wants.
