…being young and carefree as a child
Being born, and all these big faces
talking in baby language
and I wondered why they couldn’t
understand that I could remember my previous life
…being a loner as a child
…having to move to my grandparents house when I was 10
…being poor, having to make do
…living on a boat on the Isle of Man:
more affordable than renting
cheaper to heat
until I wasn’t fit enough to manage
until I needed a dry space for books and clothes
…going to amenity sites (‘the tip’) for furniture and things for home
Vanessa’s style is so natural. Both content and style are so strong and fluid and poetic.
