City Night Sounds
I rest my head on the pillow.
The sounds of the city at night begin to play…
Someone rattling bottles in a dumpster.
Neighbor yelling at dog to stop barking.
A can being kicked down the street.
Sirens closer by.
A car backfire (or was that a gun shot?).
Large trucks on the highway.
Car alarm again.
Neighbors having sex.
A group of drunk people getting out of an Uber.
Train whistle far away.
Stray cat meowing.
Homeless man barking.
Beeping from a truck backing up.
Metal gate being closed.
Neighbor’s morning alarm going off.
Garbage truck picking up trash.
Bus driving by.
My alarm going off.
