Fireworks

From my bed 
with my ear against 
my pillow I listen to the 
soft pops and feel the 
subtle vibrations

Behind my eyelids 
I can see each one 
exploding in the sky- 
bringing a smile to every
solemn face in the crowd

And as I think of the 
distance between me
and the commotion
I feel peaceful
