Poetry Blogs (2019, skin)
Off Old Cork road, as you turn into Midleton, rest
stacks of life-saving re-treads. They wait, un-like us
who have ‘Buckley’s Chance’ of reliving their youth.
The largest lay prepared, size neatly stacked,
image-ready, resigned, proudly age un-marked
claiming their fair share of the dumping ground.
Smaller circles know their corporate place, are th...

We were strangers by the pool
there was summer on your skin
I lay low, opened my whole body
in the hope that you would find me
Then taking it the distance
from the shore raised to the sky
there were many sailors scheming
on the bending of your knee

Even naked your body was a silk gown
as you sc...

Chips and dips divine
A dribble here to lick away
A splash of dip has gone astray
Soft playing music may make you swoon

Pull me close so I can lick and taste
A subtle mix of fresh bathed skin
Traces of the wine that slipped within
