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

Him gone up

I didn’t know people can
Just die
He the next person dead here
Old man die up to now
Just a lickle draft
Just a lickle cold
Him gone
Him gone up
Him gone to his home
People live long
He don’t look like him 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.
