Lani O’Hanlon reads her poem Back Up Quick They’re Hippies in this episode of Words Lightly Spoken.
In the poem, Lani recalls a hairy situation as her parents mistakenly pull into a hippy commune while on holiday in the South-West of England. She also recollects on a personal rebellion she carries out back home. The poem was first published in Poetry Magazine in Chicago.
