anticipation and summer’s

the fourth of july

for eventually everyone,

for eventually everyone,
All-American sneaks up
on you –
a once colorful
ideal faded into
a colorless
complacency, as
spirited as any rendition
of Lee Greenwood’s

voting rights –

to be swept
under the rug

flying into LaGuardia
on the fourth of
july, with nothing
to make up for
the five-hour delay,
when out of the
city of lights,
an entire garden
lit up, wild blossoms
reaching to greet us
