River City Night Life

An earful of breaks...
in overnight silence,
the ticking clock,
crickets chirping,
r-r-r-r-r-o-w-l!
a cat fight,
midnight,
a siren blares,
dogs howl,
a hooting owl,
the mouse...
at prowl,
a plane zooms...
on high,
motors, whining,
tires, as 
trucks and cars
go by,
all announcing...
River City life,
Louisville, Ky.

    You capture the chaos of life in this narrative well. The sounds are separated (as lines) which gives each their importance in the overall cacophony. For me, the poem isn’t berating but seems to celebrate the life. All caught with great description and economy.
