Solo Fireworks

Glowing Warmth

I’m happy to be
In the glow of this bonfire
I’m happy to be
Surrounded and enfolded, invisible in the crowd
I’m happy to be
Alone
Though all of the above is obviously a lie
I could have come here with friends
But I didn’t
I could have met friends that were here
But I didn’t
I wanted to be
With a lover
With a friend
With you

Cheerleader With Pom-Poms

I know how much you love fireworks
How they scare you even as they excite you
If I can’t watch fireworks
With my lover
With my friend
With you
I’ll watch them
Alone
