by Hollie McNish
Hollie McNish very often cannot help but produce a visceral reaction , because her words are so immediate, relevant and centred on what people actually feel about themselves and life in general.
This is a poem about aging bodies and the pressure people are under to ignore the passage of time in society`s pursuit of the impossible Nirvana of physical perfection.
She is one of the finest modern poets out there plying her trade. A priceless gem who should be treasured for her beautiful use of language.
