Fireworks


which do you like best?
the shrill ascent from the floating station?
arching a path unseen,
but guessed with breathless expectation?

or the fiery 'oh, my'
where whatso happens in the sky
mirrors what happens in your head
mirroring what happens overhead?

or the dazzling drizzle
into the drink, that says 'show's over':
the fading rain of colors dis-
appearing with a muffled hiss?
that's my personal favorite-
why, you can guess:
so much depends on where we sit
informing prejudice.
