Oak Bluffs Fireworks

Boom, Baam , Bang, Boom

Each earsplitting sound

Meant to arouse

Oooooh , Aaaaaah, wow

Catnip for the senses

Droplets like tears

Of joy

As if gravity defied

Suspended in air

Held by thousands of eyes

Looking to the sky

Like a spiritual high

Without a thought

Of who’s beside

Only in Oak Bluffs.
