1098: Rant by Nathalie Anderson

Today’s poem is Rant by Nathalie Anderson.

The Slowdown is your daily poetry ritual. In this episode, Major writes… “It feels like many people are passing from our lives. Not that the death of a poet is any more devastating, but when a poet dies, my grief is heavier. The year 2023 saw the loss of many poets I admire, including Benjamin Zephaniah and Louise Glück. When poet Donald Hall died in 2018, I noticed a great shift of voices, one generation exiting as another emerged. We will no longer hear their music in language. Maybe, this has always been the case.”
