Four Count Rest.

There are sirens constantly blaring,
Near this place I learned to call home;

The night air is chilly, like it reeks–
Old winter-breath, touched with decaying frost-bite.

The fridge trudges on: 

Foot-steps mechanical-sounding in the artificial silence I’ve created with the remote;

A lone dog howls,
Motor-cycles roar by,

But in all this symphonic malarkey,
My phone is awkwardly mum–

No fancy two-beat.
Merely the hanging coffin,
Of the long four count rest.
