"Always read something that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it."
Brendan Gleeson’s face is a book,
thick set lines like battered spines -
Read. Read. Re-Read.
And a violin, clutched between sternum and chin
sung out reels, and the pint glasses shook.
Brendan Gleeson’s face is a book.
"and yet, the ways we miss our lives are life"

when i am mean to my mum
Griffin calls to come and kiss him goodnight
I yell ok. Finish something I’m doing,
then something else, walk slowly round
the corner to my son’s room.
He is standing arms outstretched
waiting for a bearhug. Grinning.
Why do I give my emotion an animal’s name,
give it that dark squeeze of death?
This is the hug which collects
all his small bones and his warm neck against me.
The thin tough body under the pyjamas
locks to me like a magnet of blood.
How long was he standing there
like that, before I came?
