Fireworks On The Beach

 

FIREWORKS ON THE BEACH

Sand, everywhere.
Sulfur fills my lungs.
Even with eyes closed
I see the flash.
My heart feels
the reverberations.
Pop! Pop! Pop!
BOOOOOM!
Breathing…
In.
Out.
I remind myself
that I’m no longer
across the ocean
in a foreign land…
it is
Independence Day.
