This poem is about teaching English and conveys powerful emotions through observation of small, almost banal details: shoes in shoe shops, bright dresses, the artificial language of an English lesson.
This lovely short poem was written by a learner of English, Irene Soriano Flórez, a student at the British Institute for Young Learners in Madrid.
Reacting to good news, Formula One, ball games, telling the truth, Carolina takes a jacket back to a shop, a joke, 'everybody' and 'nobody', 'actually'.
