Planet Middle Age,
A show on Radio Old.
A repeat with a quizzical demographic
And I am and not quite tuned into
Its frequency.
                                        - from Planet Middle Age

Picking up from where Planet Young leaves off, Gerry’s second instalment of autobiographical poetry intimately explores his own love, grief, friendships, family and journey into Planet Middle Age.

It’s a journey with jostling and lost tickets, the strength and vulnerability of first-hand secrets and seats warm from the strangers that sat there before, and the intensity and passion that takes us from one planet to another.

Published by Flapjack Press on 21st July 2010. 


In his last collection, Planet Young, Potter wrote about killing off his alter-ego Chloe Poems and discovering his Scouse voice. His true voice has never been more expressive than in this latest collection. Middle age has not dampened his talent. Here are poems that will amuse, move, inspire and provoke. Long may he continue.
