i am Mardi Gras
i am the sophisticated, purple bead, dangling carelessly on your neck
i am the exuberant cheetah mask you hide behind
i am the sound of happiness and the song of spirit.
spicy food leaves fire in your mouth.
i fear the loneliness that awaits when you depart
i remember having everyone unleash the animal in them with me.
i am a sanctuary where truth is revealed
celebration lingers where ever i touch
i am alone from the million who greet me
i am the party float everyone gawks at.

we were doing an exercise in class answering question with the first word that came to your mind and all my words pertained to Mardi Gras.
