Fireworks

Fireworks explode in a summer sky
as throngs of pulsing bodies rush by

Munching on rice balls and raw fish
my mind bursts into a panasonic orgy

Red from rice wine
my throat feels dry
as boxes of toys
& bags of popcorn
explode with a volley of rockets

Like a thousand others
I dance joyfully through the night

Tomorrow's headache can wait –
right now
joy is pulsating
and as feet sway rhythmically
my mind explodes in light
