Starting The Party Early

I hear the sound and cringe
How will I ever make it through
There is still a full week to go by
And the neighbors are already
Celebrating the Fourth of July
With fireworks booming
I am fine during the day
But when the still of night is here
And a sudden blast rattles the windows
That is when I jump
That is when my anxiety peaks
That is when I am on alert
And all tensed for the next bang
I cringe again…
They have not quit for the night yet
Until they do I will be
Hyper vigilant for the next explosion
