There was a large boom from
down by the river
                        The sirens were
distant, but audible within a
minute’s time,
                        At the end of the
alley in the trough of the two
slant roofs, I thought it looked
               But I couldn’t tell
if perhaps it had something
to do with my sudden desire
to have a squad car go screaming
wrong way up the one way

To be witness to a real life event,

A commercial airplane passed,
loud, low over my head
