Poetry Out Loud: With Daisy Lupa

Ways of Talking by Ha Jin

"We used to like talking about grief"

Talking. Discussing. Complaining. Communication is an important factor of human life. It's something we do everyday. I will be presenting a beautiful exploration of this topic in a performance of Ways of Talking by the acclaimed poet/author Ha Jin. This poem explores how we discuss tragedy and heartbreak, and also, what comes after. It delves into how we talk about grief. The author uses his own experiences to talk about this subject.
