in progress . . . . .

There is a special insomnia
in this hall of lizards
-----------------------------
I've allocated
a minddump on
these
two tonic
bones
---------------------------
when my head falls
off someone
else's
will turn
---------------------------
perhaps this will lead
to some small discovery

to dry out
in the morning sun
---------------------------
this doesn't do

is to break
into a radical force
---------------------------
today I paint
with the whispers

that ended
the Roman empire

However, this hospitality has never extended to Irish poets w…
