The 4th of July

Painted orange stripped on white wooden horses
resting at the intersection of Quay and Huron Avenue.
Empty chairs lined the sidewalk
tied to parking meters-
tied to benches-
tied to trees and tied to bike racks,
tied to each other
and later
The parade marched by my windowless apartment.
