Happy 4th of July

Brooklyn

4th of July, 2011. A yellow and orange sky. You can’t see the fireworks from Brooklyn, they said. You should cross the river. Or at the very least, find a rooftop, a tall building to look down from. But we chanced it, stood low on a quiet dock. And together looked up as the great expanse yielded and sang.
