The Sound Of Noise

A fan’s hum, microwave beep
Whistle blow, skitter-scatter of four furry feet

Muffled voices through a wall
Lustful lovers shagging in a stall

Street sweepers, beeping trucks
Children’s games gone amuck

Clink-clank of dropping weights
Soapbox extremists preaching hate

Turning stiles, train track clacks
Automated prompts, microphone feedback

Barking dogs at the run
Timer ping, massage all done

Construction workers’ catcalls
Belligerent drunks in bar brawls

Screaming protesters on the street
A breaking cab’s halting screech

All these sounds I avoid
By streaming my own melodious MP3 noise

Barking dogs at the run

I'd take out (at the) thus making it

Barking dogs run
other than that good poem, it flows very well...

Robert, "at" the run, not "on" the's used as a noun not a verb.
Momma coming to Ky's defense :-) Thanks for following Kylie's blog. I'm very proud of her!

Thank you both for the kind comments, and Momma is correct. I am referencing barking dogs at the (dog) run.
