Sounds Of The City

Dogs bark.
Cats meow.
Something rattles in a garbage can.

Cars honk.
Doors slam.
And someone yells for another taxi cab.

And in the air
Something hums.
The life and the breath of the city.

Hear its heartbeat pounding in the pavement.
See its rhythm flashing red and yellow and green.

People yell.
Babies cry.
Someone gets kicked out of his nice warm home.

And it’s all another day
In the city.

April Writing Prompts
