Lockdown Poetry: Two Metres Apart.

In Spring 2020, when the UK was experiencing its first lockdown due to the global Covid 19 pandemic, Emily Dean of Voicefox asked me to write a poem for multiple voices to lift people's spirits. 

I often write, but I'd never been asked to write for multiple voices before! It was a wonderful challenge, & when I sat down with pen & paper, the poem almost wrote itself.

I recorded it to give Emily an idea of how it might sound...

But it was so lovely to hear it brought to life by fellow voiceovers & stitched together by Emily.

Two Metres Apart, by Sara Starling.

Two metres apart (spoken by lots of staggered voices)

 

Two metres apart

Is an art!

 

But a voice?

Gives you choice!

 

To enter an ear

Right here…

 

A dart

To the heart

And here?

A tear.

 

Two metres apart

Is an art!

 

But a voice?

Gives you choice!

 

To collaborate,

Communicate, with

 

Parity,

Clarity,

The unseen

Ability

To say what you mean.

 

Two metres apart

Is an art!

 

But a voice?

Gives you choice!

 

To inspire

Desire.

 

To comfort.

But more….

To reassure.

 

Two metres apart

Is an art!

 

But a voice?

Gives you choice!

 

To whisper or shout.

To tout

An idea.

 

To fight,

Unite,

To switch on a light!

 

Two metres apart

Is an art!

 

But a voice?

Gives you choice!

 

To open the door

To a whole new world…

 

Unbox

Voicefox.

Take a safe step forward,

Remote but together

To wherever

You choose.

 

Two metres apart

Is an art!

 

But a voice?

Gives you choice!
