outside the window

each explosion
lights the silhouettes

i peek out
checking on children
watching grown men
act like little boys

i only count one child
and begin to panic
looking for child
number two

an explosion in the sky
and then a sparkler
illuminates her eyes
and her long legs

and once again
i realize
she is no longer a child
although my heart says she is

happy 4th
