Millions of lives interwoven in a city, all with their own detail.


The view across the river

it looks jalf asleep,

a stillness tells lies

about this place.

I do not hear the feet

nor the voices that speak

not even the mobil

with its annoying tune,

you know the one

diddly diddly

dip dip dee

but I do not hear ot

its not bothering me.

'Hey you over there, in the silent cuty,'

'tell me about your lives

I need a story.'

A bike padlocked to the railings

going no where

thats for sure,

no rider no people

this side or that

a view across the river

only silence comes back.

This reminds me of the old adage that "one can be alone in a crowd of many". The picture is well depicted by your poem--indicating stillness and silence. Nice job.
