The contralto croak of honking horns,
And a gurgling gush of sinuous sewers.
Warbling whistle of crude catcalls,
And trill tunes of metal meeting metal.
A shrill shriek of broken belts,
And gridlock’s growl in a concrete copse.
Fiercely feral, the savage city.
“The contralto croak of honking horns”.
All the lines are good but I like this one best. Contralto croak is quite brilliant.
Wow Simon, thank you!
My husband teased that he had to Google ‘contralto’. 😉
Creative terms – inspired phraseology. Nice work here, well done.
