Barnyard Concert at Dusk
stadium of tiered strains
crickets getting on key
off-key bleating goats
sound-boosting rooster straining in
heckling-cackles from the hens
melodic symphony of songbirds
grunty strumming backbeat pig
headbang-drumming woodpecker
string-section grasshoppers’ lilting cadence
high-trilling tree frogs
windchimes ring  
porch swing chain keeping tempo
as we sway
to this cacophonous
sunset serenade
