Smaller hours



"Writing as distraction
writing as a work

routine takes away freedom
freedom takes away restraint
restraint takes away fear
fear takes away hope
hope takes away past
past present future all in a day"
                                         Donnellan, Desmond




- Every day
one bottle
half a pint of milk:
two days
Teabags, unnumbered
your demise, steady
Every day, grocery shop
a gentleman! they said
(dead dead dead)

one packet of cakes
“loose fruit”
cigarettes
bread, sliced.
Working Dog

And in the hidden corner
of your most secret terror
your most blatant surrender
life dragged on like
a spectre
and the rotting peels dripped
and the stained tissues
festered -
