someone is coming on the night of the fireworks
to spread out the table cloth
and divide up the bread
and pass out the Pepsi
and pass out the slips on registration day
and give everybody hospital
and distribute the rubber boots
and pass out Fardin movie tickets
and give away Sayyed Javad's daughter's dresses
and even give us our share.
I've had a dream.
