midnight chime; stone-set
day, timely quietus

Have you experienced, nocturnally
as you lay awake, ear upon ground
Not voices, nor creatures nor dissonance
but a sensical crepitation . . .
An interesting, steady and unending
completely reliable pulsation . . .
Eventually realized as the buffered
churning, the mechanical pumping
Never-ending, reliable soothing
sounds of overnight metal workhorses
When deepest silence makes evident that
Earth groans under local pumpjacks.
Prompted by Fandango post at This, That, and The Other
(Ragtag Daily Prompt—crepitate)
