Croghan Hill, Co. Offaly

Croghan Hill, Co. Offaly Here she looms, by the western road, sentinel and herald, where our tribal priests once processed to this umbilicus, become primordial catechist, their crane skin bags rattling with chants and runes as ligament to our blind reach for the sacred and acknowledgement of ignora...

Re: Inside McDonald's looking out

They say imitation is the highest form of compliment... or maybe it's something else.

Inside Burger King Looking Out...

Inside Burger King Looking Out... after Evening Prayer in the Pro-Cathedral, a Buddhist monk begs in a tan linen jacket, wears a canvas fishing hat and extends a bronze plate, his benign smile accepting the unexpected; father and son draped in Bohemian scarfs saunter towards Dalymount for a rendezv...

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

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 ...
