So wide awake from blissful slumber. It’s noise again just pick a number!
Barking dogs, reversing truck, an ambo’s siren wish them luck. All blend to make the drummers beat, the city’s soul, the city’s streets.
This city beats a noisy drum, of sirens, cars, its song goes on.
And so I lay as if to rest and find it’s noise a sweet caress and spend some time just ‘counting sheep’ until at last I fall asleep.
Last night I woke to the sound of two apartment blocks being evacuated at 3 in the morning. Poor buggers. Two fire alarms going off and a fire truck on the approach. Then wide awake I waited.
- Counting sheep – a very common phrase. Refers to when you have trouble falling asleep. You mentally count sheep in your head.
