LOST IN SPACE

Let loose in an international community,
I am either lost at sea, or a child in a candy store.
“How can we help you?” I am not sure.

If you’re looking for Art, it is in aisle 2;
Philosophy, Literary Criticism, aisle 3;
political discourse (minus propaganda), aisle 4;

Romance, fantasy and sci-fi, aisle 5;
Erotica, in the corner (big selection). I wander
(lonely as a cloud), lost in distraction.

Years have ticked by; opportunity comes and goes.
Carpe Diem! Hell, what is today? Lose track of time.
This is not a conversation, it is a rambling monologue.

Stage is bare, theatre is empty; I did advertise opening night
(Didn’t I?). Love might not based on merit, wealth or charm.
Regard, respect and recognition is. Tempus fugit,

time flees (or some other piece of learned Latin)
Let loose in an international community,
I am either lost at sea, or a child in a candy store.

“How can we help you?” I am not sure.
Maybe I’m happy, being lost and dazed,
dazzled, bewitched; even quite simply amazed.

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller, and although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television.
