It's Episode 2! This week it was such a treat to get to speak to and hear from the Wonderful Zena Kazeme - We both shared some old old poems and some new old poems, as well as borrowing some stunners from our all-time faves, before finishing on a slightly blue mood (with a caveat of hope!). We also touch on how poems can be both light and heavy, timely and timeless, and what makes a poem a poem if it doesn't have an audience (or rules!).
It's been almost exactly a year since we first went into Lockdown in the UK, and as we keep squinting for the light at the end of the tunnel it's been things like this that have got me through, so a massive thank you to Zena for coming on and to you for downloading and listening! Here's to sharing a real-life stage before too long. Stay Brilliant x
