New Body Language Takes the Sting out of Aging … Through Laughter
When Janet Hoult finally listened to her body … it told her to laugh. Laugh along with her with her new poetry collection, Body Language.
By: Outskirts Press, Inc.
It’s hard to find any humor in the inevitable aging process: multiplying wrinkles, worn-out knees, fruitlessly counting calories, colonoscopies, and all the aches and pains in between. These all-too-human situations form the (creaky) backbone of Body Language, Hoult’s hilarious collection of poems lamenting the infirmities of advanced age. Hoult’s cheeky poetry delves into topics anyone of a certain vintage can relate to:
and much more.
Everyone can relate to the frustration of aging body parts, but by poking fun at themselves, readers can handle whatever life throws their way. So read, enjoy … and laugh! And remember, “Though our bodies do not function / As they did when we sought action / With pills and exercise each day / We hope that we will be OK …”
