, ,

fingers knocking on stiff keys

burst of syncopated sneeze

clicking pen worked many times

fork hits plate with steely tines

flat tire hisses, thud and bounce

housecat dashes, dart and pounce

heavy thump of toddler feet

siren wailing down the street

rhythmic beat of life mundane

sound and tempo, joy and pain
