Talk Us Through it, Charlotte

Talk Us Through it, Charlotte

Poem introduction

'Talk Us Through it, Charlotte' - one little thing I'd like to explain about this poem is that, for some reason, I have imagined Charlotte to be a Black Country girl. The Black Country is the part of England that I grew up in, a heavy, industrial area with its own voice, its own accent. So Charlotte has that voice and I shall try and use it when I read.
