I watched fireworks in the rain tonight,
standing in the middle of the street
on a cool green island by the hospital

I had a too-sweet alcoholic drink
in a plastic cup with a straw
my key in my back pocket
my home a half a block away

And the world stood with me
and watched the pretty colours
spatter the wet gray sky

And I thought of you again
and wondered what you'd think
as a maple shook with my laughter
and rivulets descended from its comforting leaves
and I couldn't help but smile and gasp
as the cold rain ran down my back

and the sky erupted
in a giggle of gunpowder
and nobody died
