Fireworks

Each of our tiny communities has been
packaged very strategically together
for optimum individual
performances

by many glasses-wearing Japanese.
My neighbors and myself
were specified for our uniquely
deeply different indifferences,
for our reactions, for sulfurous yellows.

We each now keep to ourselves
(reading books, doing crosswords),
knowing the altogether dangerousness
were our paths to ever more fully
cross,

understanding that all it would take is
one single quite unintentional spark
to ignite our destructively latent
energies and bring about a

breakable immediately excitable expansion
and sudden, deathly-cooled
apocalypse.
