Older Now: Poems is a collection of LELjr’s most recent poetry. As with his first collection, Out of My Mind: Poems, the new book reflects on parenthood, romantic love, aging, memory, and mortality in their various expressions—contemplation, introspection, insight, and emotion—as he has grown older. The poems are more inward-looking than the earlier ones. “I am everyone I have ever been,” he says. Yet as he writes in the title poem, he says “I find myself in a narrowing space between memory and mortality, and I am not at all sure which way to look” as he explores T. S. Eliot’s “overwhelming question”: Has it all been worth it? He hopes these poems evoked similar types of reflection by readers who are, will someday be, or know someone who is “older now.”
