the first of the year

Quieter celebrations this year, no gatherings, no people downstairs, and the fireworks were late by two minutes. We imagined a lighter malfunctioning and silent panic as all the other neighborhoods erupted into noise around us. Eventually, however, the fireworks came.

Random bursts in an otherwise quiet night. Barely any smoke.

Just breathe in the new year.
