The city is celebrating. The night sky
is illuminated by the flashes of fireworks.
On the terrace, a boy and a girl watch
the show; they study each other; their
faces are illuminated by the reflections.
Slowly, they move closer to each other,
uncertain of the other’s intentions;
perhaps they are scared of being
rebuffed. They search for each other,
incapable of finding each other,
as the city is illuminated by the
beautiful explosions of light.
