THE SOUNDS OF MY INSOMNIA

  1. The train whistle and chug coming through town, every 15 minutes, or so
  2. Traffic on Main Street
  3. Leaves rustling down the sidewalk
  4. Leaves crunching underfoot as a neighbor walks by
  5. The heater coming on
  6. My fall allergy nose whistling
  7. My daughter's bed squeaking as she changes position
  8. A vague ringing in my ears
  9. A jet
  10. The dog next door barking at the leaves rustling
  11. A car door slam
  12. My voice in my head telling me to go to sleep, already. It's after midnight.
