night sounds, summer

August 24th, 2023 · No Comments

distant whistle of the midnight freight
pulling into the rail yards downtown

burring rumbled whirr of freeway traffic
passing endlessly behind my house

murmuring voices of next-door neighbors
home from the show and not yet drunk

muffled clink of the spoon against
the bottom of my ice cream bowl

a cough from somewhere outside

a cricket from somewhere inside

the ticking clock on the bookshelf
