Fireworks Night

It’s another cause for celebration:
The surrender of the Japanese
At the end of World War II.

Fireworks light the sky above Linfen
And Chinese singers sing proudly
Amplified down Gulou Road East.

It’s as bright as a battlefield, loud as a war.
The old people can’t hear a thing
And are in bed early.
