Poetry Corner: 4th of July

Fireworks at a park three miles away
Husband taking photos with a cell phone:
Useless trying to capture something ephemeral,
he says,
No way to recreate these moments,
the boom of the explosions.
The story of our politics, I wonder
trying for the same,
to recreate a story of independence,
bravery and freedom and history,
something ephemeral
