Watching fire rise from the rivers of the Mississippi, we counted memories from the night before trying to piece together the puzzle of our adventurous all night festivities.  The street smells sticky with daiquiris and hot rain as the morning shift hoses down the small french quarter cobbled avenues.   Lost souls wander to the sound of early morning zydeco playing from the tattered speakers of the bars now opening.  A melting pot of dreams, fantasies, turmoil, and lust , we were mixed right into it like a fine made pastry.   We search for anything resembling a coffee shop in hopes of awakening our heavy eyes, bloodshot and now wincing at the rising light.  I can taste all our conversations aroused by never-ending  sweet and sour cocktails.  With the sun directly on top of us, this town is much different in the daytime, the schools of people have dissipated, if only for a few hours, an left the city to repair her broken bones.  We shall return.
