Poetry: “Noises”

A short little thing, fairly free form.

***~***~***~***

Noises

 

The flap

Of a dove’s wings

As loud as any drumbeat

In the stillness of the morning

 

The cry

Of a tired infant

As piercing as a sharp nail

In the quiet of the night

 

The coughing

Of a sickly gentleman

As shocking as a cold shower

In the darkness of a movie theater

***
