New Year’s Resolutions

A helluva mess,
Times Square
after the ball dropped
and the New Year had officially
arrived on the heels of confetti
and spilled champagne.

As soon as the crowd dispersed
street sweepers were at the ready, unmindful
that they were cleaning up after a birth.
It might just as well have been a war

except on the second day
The Square was reclaimed;  gridlocks
resumed,  leaving no sign
of celebration or confrontation.
By the third day it was done…forgotten,
even the resolutions.
