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

Words from the Cellar

I’m finding myself such a quick way
Been dealing with and
Telling them you definitely
Gonna get stuff
From the cellar
But now, don’t work –
Pulled it all from the cellar
And you were left and so was I
Gone, all gone

 

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