Richard Dinges, At City’s Edge

Richard Dinges

Noise is an overloaded
truck, a roar that rises
and engulfs, then lowers,
absorbs distance
and wind into a dusting
of dead leaves shattered
in its wake, a rush
through dry grass,
broken limbs, my brief
brush with a world
wide commerce that
passes my by, awakens
me from dark depths,
before I return
to silence under moon’s
unperturbed glow,
the music of dreams.

Bio: Richard Dinges has an MA in literary studies from University of Iowa, and after many years, he no longer manages business systems at an insurance company. Pinyon, Nebo, The Journal, Homestead Review, and Home Planet News most recently accepted his poems for their publications.
