Limerick

Two smoking towers behind me

I see them in my rear view.
Driving forward down the major highway of my hometown and it’s the Fourth of July and I’m trying to figure out why fireworks make me sad.
July 4th-the shortest season’s intermission. Nights get longer and days get colder.
But driving home with sparkles and flames and too soon gone artwork surrounding me.  I’m not sure if there has ever been a better half time show.
