We’re delighted to be featuring Lesley Storm’s beautiful collection of poems, It’s About Time: Poems of an Uncertain Woman. At 67 years old, Lesley has written a meditation on the passing of time, her reflections living as a trans woman and overcoming adversity, and what it means to her to be a woman. Here are love poems, life poems, elegies, aubades, odes, existential solitude poems, prose poems, joyous poems of fleeting human pleasures, poems compassionate, sanguine and witty, poems delicate with vulnerability, urgent poems on survival over time.
It’s About Time: Poems of an Uncertain Woman is published by Edinburgh based indie press Leamington Books and is available in all good bookshops.
This podcast is produced and edited by Megan Bay Dorman.
