Dean Atta – “Forty Things I Never Said” | Poetry Video

dean atta
Acclaimed poet and writer Dean Atta expresses many lost words and hidden emotions in his new performance piece “Forty Things I Never Said”.

Taking place in a flat, an isolated Atta unearths forty honest and unforgiving phrases which he refused to utter, including “I don’t love you”, “you should respect yourself” and “I haven’t forgiven you”. Recited with a tone of regret and anguish, anyone who has ever refrained from speaking from the heart will instantly relate with the short one minute and fifty second video. “Forty Things I Never Said” is taken from Dean Atta’s new book of poems “I Am Nobody’s N*gger”.
