Spirit of '15

Pulled over on the highway,
huddled on the berm,
eyes skyward,
reverent--
Distant cheers,
toddler shrieking in Spanish
as fog meets fireworks contrails
in thunderheads
roiling over farmlands
resembling
    the day after--
So many cars criss-cross
cornfields
on sleepy roads,
one wonders where they all came from,
to whom they return--
People who know better.
