Fourth of July Quietly

It was so quiet last night. I had waited up to hear it for myself. There was one crackling’ boom. Was that, firework? Yes. Just the one. It does help to be hard of hearing. My wife says there were many more in the direction she pointed. I heard nothing from there. Last year, oh my what a difference. There was a pair of guys dueling with roman candles. That was our neighborhood for the days before and after the fourth of July.
