streets are silent
shoes whisper on concrete
in the distance a single siren
a car revs up
tires squealing
dim lights from houses not sleeping
a dog barks
another answers
shoes whisper on concrete
a rabbit darts from the hedge
zig zagging across the street
back cat close behind
a siren answers
black and white on portage
ignoring the light
crescent moon peeks between the trees
streets are silent
houses are dark
a dog barks
no one answers
evening star chased by the moon
sets below the horizon
only in my mind
sleeping house block my vision
westminster leads me to evanson
streets are silent
a dog barks
