Poem By James E. Magyary
Fourth of July unfolds,
run up a pole,
freed in a flap.

The sun promenades
along its dazzling archway.
This dirt backroad scrawls
through a torn nowhere.

cracks the air,
salutations gunned
from a reddened engine,
white smoke shot
towards royal-blue sky.

Backseat bouncing and side
to side rocking
chatters me like a china
cup in the jitterbugged
hand. I'm
bone dice in her shaker;

she's Destiny with a lead foot.
Barreling around curves and bends,
changes and then straight-aways,
I plead "driver, driver-lady,
please keep your foot away from that brake."
Above is one of my favorite all-time poems about a hair-raising ride on The Fourth of July. This is a mix of comedic delight, outstanding sonics and imaginative flair. Written by a very clever guy , whom I adore and admire so dearly, this graces my blogsite with style and poetry at its very best.
