Night Sounds - Poem by Leonard Dabydeen

Night sounds
they are
orchestrated
with anonymity
with familiarity
voices parading
in the dark
someone shouting
beat language
echoing call of darkness
spooky
or blended with child play
mother and child
rubber burning
with screech of traffic
interstate or highway
crickets calling
bloated frogs croaking
on bedrock by the pond
in a village yard
owls keep hooting
night listens
to cat calls
mournful meowing
dogs down the street
barking, crying
and across the boardwalk
mosquitoes buzz
and I snore
relentlessly
as moonlight
chases shadows away.
