The skyrockets splay at random in the sky along the road as I drive home in darkness from the Emergency Room in Ann Arbor where I have left my friend after being sent there by the first Emergency Room we went to. It was ok. I volunteered to spend the day driving to, and waiting in emergency rooms. I knew what was waiting for me there. I knew it would not be only the interminable wait, but would also be the memories sucked out of my brain where they should have been left sleeping. The fireworks was an unexpected bonus.
