Inside Burger King Looking Out

Inside Burger King Looking Out observing, after Evening Prayer in the Pro- Cathedral, the Buddhist beggar in brown linen jacket and a canvas fishing hat extending a bronze begging plate, his benign smile accepting the unexpected; and now father and son draped in Bohemian scarfs saunter towards Daly...

Re: Traces Left Behind

Father Lemaitre’s Cosmic Egg

Father Lemaitre’s Cosmic Egg* explodes at the moment of the creation; the shell dance disintegrates at the inter-nexus between the melody and the voice vibrating the magpie out of its twig-laden nest and into shook-feathered flight as it rolls upon the breeze riffling by the sun-hyacinth lake where...

Traces Left Behind

Traces Left Behind Crossing at the traffic lights in Parliament Street, and making his way over Capel Street bridge he processed in priest-like dignity bearing, in one hand, a just-opened tin of John West sardines, and in the other, a white plastic fork. He vestured a power-blue business suit-jacke...

Altar Earth

Altar Earth The altar is a cliff escarpment above the oyster grey evening sea where they kneel and stand as ritual requires; the psalm read, the sermon given, the hymnal sung in praise and gratitude. Below, the slurping waters throng with seaweed and anemone, throbs into a living pulse. The tundra ...

Shannon Crossing

Shannon Crossing Out of Cootehall I crossed where the princely Shannon sleeps and plugged my recording mind into the ambient silence of warblers and intermittent cock-crow piercing the distance between the bees reminiscing and the green metallic-shine of dragonflies floating on a black meniscus. In...

Canal Walk - Winter

Canal Walk – Winter Once again I walk by Srah Castle, its gable-length cracks still unsettling; yet so it has been down generational memory, the fissures permanent, its anonymous history continues. Over the iron railway bridge the silver-green commuter train ambles in modern rumbling tones towards ...

By What Act

By What Act By what act of luck does it happen that someone believes, though this may not be much consolation in an anarchic universe, where what deserves unimaginable punishment is granted health, beauty, riches, intelligence; and what is there about belief that prevents someone committing to the ...

Leonard Cohen on Mt. Baldy.

I wrote this a few years ago. I offer it as a Tribute So Long, Lennie 1934 - 2016 Leonard Cohen on Mt. Baldy.

A Café in Mullingar

A Café in Mullingar A café in Mullingar pipes Howard Jones’ ‘No one is to blame’ and other 80s synched and electronified discotheque sounds wafted through a beat and thrust of persistent fevered dedication to relentless consummation that drives economies and political penumbrations; no one here, st...
