4th of July Poem on the 4th of July

deerhorn avenue

off john gray

road


today

and walked up a hill

surrounded by


1970s

ranch-styles

people


shooting

off

secret fireworks


no one out front though

everyone

in backyards


doing that

and the sun

so hot it makes you


wonder who

you are

deep down


america is a bunch of

houses

neighbors


who don't know

each other

don't want to know


each other

i get it

but still


there's this ache

this beautiful

ache


to want to

and that's

something


i guess

that they want to
