It’s Friday afternoon, which means it’s time for a short video poetry reading. I like to think you might sit back and watch, and enjoy a few minutes quietly inside your own head.
This time, a couple of poems about decluttering and letting go of stuff. They’re relevant at any age but especially so if you think about yourself as almost old. (Or old. Or even very old.) A certain kind of transformation needs to happen when we have lived a few decades. It’s not just material things that clutter up your life. There’s a sort of psychic clutter that has also got to go.
Both poems are from my new collection, HOW TO BE OLD, published by The Cuba Press.
