July Blues

The Fourth of July that comes
after the last child
has grown beyond fireworks
is a painful time,
as you pace the driveway
looking at the faint marks left
of last years snakes and rockets,
and watch the neighborhood light up.
You hush the dogs and
watch a little TV, while aware 
of the thuds, cracks and explosions
and hope
for grandchildren.
