Henry Ponder is a British poet that writes short poems about everyday life. On Twitter, his poems are quick thoughts not exceeding 140 characters. His bio captures his poetic style, “I do not find these thoughts, these thoughts find me. I try to write them down nicely.”

Similar to Ramchandani, many of us have a to-do list that grows by the minute, and our phones are always buzzing or chirping to notify us of a new email or a status update.

There’s a human hair in my meal.
If you ask me how I feel,
I’d say it’s more of a downer
than an upper
to have an uninvited person
Pentagram’s short film, Mind Your Head, is a tribute video to Henry Ponder, an unknown poet that emerged from a sea of massive social media noise. By just sharing his thoughts about socks bending space and time, ocean waves, and obnoxious signs, it reminds us to reflect on the little things we tend to forget in life. You can read more of Henry’s poems here and follow him on Twitter.
