Identifying Parts of You in Plays

after Suddenly Last Summer by Tennessee Williams Violet descending, grieving light in the white shadeof a jungle that strangled the dinosaurs,Venus; the fly trap for a summer’s notebookof fine young cannibals along a coast of blazing sandswhere saint Sebastian dug down into sinand beak broke into the belly of all they had namedas enchanted.

To be able to Identify ourselves in Books

We are still, all of us, hungry. We are, all of us, today, Hungary; wanting to be able to open a book,in the early days of trying to identifywho it is we’re on route to becoming,and find a reflection of that selfsmiling back at us from the inside pageswe can easily open out.

There are footprints on the beach- horses hooves whose metal shoes now feel the rust of theContinue reading “BLACK BEAUTY, THE LIGHT IN LOUGHSHINNY”

LEARNING TO CLIMB WALLS

  There can be earthquakes in little towns, far from tectonic plates, on little streets, rarely shaken where we sat, once, on the wall of a garden now obsolete, the summer burning through our cool-lessness as we trembled beneath attractions we didn’t have the words to understand while eyes watched from windows, trying to translateContinue reading “LEARNING TO CLIMB WALLS”
