How does it feel? How does it look? What does it make the poet consider? How and why does it make her consider the things she does?
Some of the poems are about the poet’s own experience of the mental and physical changes relating to ageing. Yet others relate to what she observes in other people.
A few of the poems are also rejected poems from the collection “Poems to K“, which is a short poetry collection about an even shorter relationship to a man roughly 30 years her senior. So, that alone should tell you that ageing isn’t (in these poems) necessarily seen as something negative.
Rather than portray ageing negatively, these are somber poems – stating facts.
