After the fireworks

What do you do when there is
nowhere to go and you can't go home?
You stow your phone back
after checking your face for marks,
because there's no one to tell

And go to stand near a bus stop:
Vaguely aware of the night buses
passing through like empty carnival trucks;
and nearby fireworks in the drizzle.
Then you head back.
