Brand new on YouTube is my second video from The Revolution Sessions, a series of videos from poems in my forthcoming book. If you want to follow my channel then just head to www.youtube.com/martingreypoet.
“I Should Have Said Something” is about a couple I overheard on a train and the internal conflict it can give you when you hear nasty and incoherent things, but aren’t sure how to confront them in the moment.
Their conversation got a lot worse than the stuff referenced in the poem, but I chose not to quote the really bad bits, even though it’s from a critical perspective. We’re all entitled to our views, but ignorance and malice get us nowhere.
I hope you enjoy it. As always, constructive feedback is always welcome.
Video filmed and edited by the most excellent Roseanna Escobar-Byrne.
