I remember the maddened fizzle

of the radio broadcasts and

garbled patriotic tunes,

people boiling over into the

streets, churning beneath the skyscrapers

and bright billboards of Times Square,

kicking up their heels and confetti

and God-Bless-Americas,

a man kissing the woman he’d never met

crimped over his arm.
