The 4th Dis-Observed: Vollies - Poem by bill costley

In the cool of the evening
of naieve-nationalist 4th
rumbling vollies explode

not far enuf from my windows,
fake thunder punctuated by
rattling firecracker vollies.

Just my contempt arises
at civic celebration
of naieve patriotism

by gunpowdered rifiling,

fake rifle vollies ripping
& tearing, shattering
sporadic fake rifle vollies...
