Gladys’s Party

Gladys thought party short for apartment and she took

one with a ferny balcony and a good view of

the parade. The usual misfits were there. Her best

friend, Gary Two-Thumbs the ape dentist; Lana Fundingbody and her gothic squeeze Mona Persona; Henry Withchickens of course; and Dork her dog, a mind like

an onion Gladys would say: the layers! She had a pot full of

chamomile tea for a

punch recipe cooling

on the floor

which someone stepped in. They were all early and the punch

wasn’t ready and none were really in a mood to talk

and Gladys had come for a week so had brought all her

books, so they just sat around reading. Except Gladys who kept moving around

the apartment, checking the clock, putting a strawberry here an emu feather there watering the ferns every five minutes so soon the balcony was as wet

Comissar Razinin: This anonymous report was sent to me. They’re dragging the good name of our country through every cafe and nightclub.

Vulgar of manner, overfed,
Overdressed and underbred;
Heartless, Godless, hell’s delight,
Rude by day and lewd by night…
Crazed with avarice, lust and rum,
New York, thy name’s delirium.
Byron Rufus Newton (1906)

In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.”

― Friedrich Nietzsche

`Unu mai a ho`onu`anu`a ke kilu o Kalama`ula, ho`ole`ale`ale`a i ke kaha o Kaunalewa.

Bring all the kilu for amusement at Kalama`ula to make merry on the field of Kaunalewa.

To come together for a gay time and bring whatever you have to add to the fun. There is a play on lewa, which refers to the swinging of the hips in hula.

“No matter how good things are, there will always be solitary nights you spend in your bedroom or car or in a party full of your closest friends when it feels like the walls are caving in.

Be not angry that you cannot make others as you wish them,
since you cannot even make yourself as you wish to be.
