CITY LIFE

CITY LIFE

hub of wheeling dealing
life blood rushing gushing
pumping breathing
filthy fumes that clot the air
radiation infiltration
contamination penetration
permeation
vaccines to overtake
plague pandemic pestilence
outbreak

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!

    I avoid cities . . . like the plague! 😀

    • Not any longer, Kate. Once I experienced farm life, that was it for me. Enjoy your trip to London and hope the peregrines make their appearance. 😆

    • I can understand some people preferring the throb, hubbub and vibe of the city. I did too when I moved up here, but it was short-lived… Rushing through life is not for me, Barb.
