there under the steady
hot shower, i rinse the
chlorine out of my

sun-streaked hair (the
remaining essence of
summertime).  outside,

near-yet-distant booms
ring out into the heat.
i find myself remembering

this holiday, but years
ago... so young, but so
sure.  fireworks in the

alley all night; bright
bursts of color and vivid
light over the lake.  it seems

so long ago, and i am
older now, but my heart
still beats with that same

familiar anticipation, the

same exhilaration.
