I live in a busy street. Cars and the tram screeching or honking, people with dogs, even the birds in the trees are asking for attention. It seems like the birds’ vocal chords even have become stronger over the years to predominate all the other city sounds.
As soon as it gets dark, the silence settles in. Birds just beep before twilight to get their last food. Apart from the ever streaming cars, there is peace. But then again later when the night has fallen long ago, there is always at least one shitfaced girl who squeals louder than all the other sounds together during the day.
