City Life

search
Careful steps, running strides. Some that slip, some that slide.

Feet that move up and down, some noisy. Some silent without a sound.

Mouths that mumble, mouths that kiss. Mouths shut firmly, some mouthing… ‘it’s you I miss’.

Mouths moving up and down, some making sense others just a meaningless sound.

Noisy cars, bikes that roar. Machines thundering and planes that soar.

Resounding noises going up and down. Some we cannot live without others best confined to underground.

Could life be lived at a more gentle pace, or are we simply a noisy race?

Build me a screen behind which I could disappear until there’s something I want to hear!

Invaded, insulted, threatened or worse. Why is noise such a curse?

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.
