Fourth of July

As I walked to the garage I could hear the crickets chirping happily.
When I inhaled the air it felt as if it was filling me with energy.
The pavement was still dark from the rain and there were puddles occasionally to splash in.
The atmosphere felt thick and rich with life.
And somewhere off in the distance I could hear muffled explosions.
Then one, two, three blasts of light came, almost like lightening.
And then the sky was filled with reds and blues and whites.

America was off in the distance celebrating her independence, with illegal, Asian, made-in-sweat-shop fireworks.
