Transient Sound

2 Comments

What’s that noise?
Overhead and to the right
A whirring, burring, buzzing –
You look for a whirligig

Or

Could it be a firework rocket?
In June?
At 7 o’clock in the morning?

Or

Have the aliens come
At last?

And

They’re as small
As
Your ear.

  1. Really like the use of questions, the astounding happening of the firework and the closing stanza’s are just wonderful.

    Great work here.
