“Like Yesterday”

listening to
unnatural sounds
disturbances of my peace
now, origin
must be determined
electric hum
of heating unit
likely giving out
occasional clicking
of coffeepot, though
I’d bet, it’s turned
to sludge
dog barks
not mine, of course
dumb beast, barks
at everything
or maybe
they’ve finally come
to take me
away
wonder, sit, wait
but hear only mechanical noise
evidence of life
of civilization
just another junkie
peeking out
from closed curtains
and locked doors
another sunrise
until all has been forgotten
