[Read] a poem written by an older person with dementia who took part in a recent PEN project

 

Well – it’s possible

They haven’t by any chance got some hidden receivers here?
Every second chair or something is being recorded?
Whoever is listening?
People if interested in persons’ behaviour would like to see them
Whether they do something useful or just going to the toilet
The whole world is probably under observation by something else
And you may be the only one writing a book about these things
And the others observing might put in to print of their own
Completely different but at the same time
Well, it’s possible

 

 

This poem came out of a project English PEN ran with Living Words in partnership with the European Commission Representation in the United Kingdom.
