The fireworks are spent and the crowds have gone home. We are alone except for the cleanup crew, who rustle around collecting garbage and putting away equipment. They give us some strange looks as we remain there into the wee hours of the morning, but mostly they leave us alone. Floodlights illuminate the city park. I feel like we are lying in the middle of a football field, complete with stadium...
