Aidan Fallon

 

 

 

On returning to Charlie Byrne’s Bookshop

 

I am a herd of Friesians,

hides quivering and udders swaying,

as the gate opens

on silt-sweetened river meadow grass.

 

I am the leap off searing rock

into a translucent pool.

 

I am blood draining to the heart.

I am kindling to oxygen’s caress.

 

I am a seventy year old woman

in a Lenten church

mouthing silent devotion

station by station.
