An squeeze it out and spread it around a bit and see if I could rearrange and sometimes cool that poetry. I was thinking of yeah. It is partially, but I'm also thinking because the appleton you. Do.

The same chunk from Marxist thesis on feel about that the the breakfast cane I'm at where he said the philosophy The point however is to change. It mocks that he wants to do that with this. I say. Poets might six interpret the world. I won't my woods to change it. That's the whole point and education is the easiest mice. Directs and clearest sign that you changed the world.

At the moment you've been filming yourself and sharing your poems online, and so I'm thinking about their the link, not just between poetry and not teaching. But your activism and your cells, the political heart that beats in you. So when I suppose. What's the difference with the word that you were doing before the pandemic in the work you're doing now. Is it very different has evolved or is it? Are you doing more of the same bigger? Well! I'm really fortunate position that the pandemic give me a load of time I'm and yes, it has given me stress, but in comparison to a lot of people that have come into contact with a giving the relatively less stress, I'm giving lots of other people And it's been off a creative canceled every time.

What's happening for me? Is the things that I would normally respond to it just over ramped up and so my writing is responding to that I I tend to to write from. A point of having a message to share or a passion that I just can't. Get Out in any other direction I'm poetry's sometimes the absolute best way to explain something that has a to me for some time. My best poems like the coach from Chameleon piece. I having spent years explaining to people who I am what I think of myself in terms of my ethnic. and. Cultural Heritage. I managed.

There are important issues there are messages that really need to be communicated, and that just keeps spurring me to do more and more and more so yes I think. I'm larger than life the moment because I'm responding to larger than life situations. It's making me. I'm produce large amounts of work. And I would hope the intensities also actually impacting on the quality I think. when I really care about things I get them right. as well as as as as well as wanting to get get them written on a want to get them right as A. Lovely law in the. You're not really a writer. If guessing it right is more important than getting written by actually great writing is with the to fuse where you're desperate to get it right, and you know you have to get written, and you have to get it written now because this message isn't going to be pertinent in two weeks time so.

Thinking about the teddy prompt and the difference between learning ones were. Being an actress well on repeating. Ones welcome taking ownership that way, and like you say reading from a teleprompter rescreen has altered. Your relationship with your work doesn't embodied in the same way.
