Where is Aaron?

I cannot find you brother. How can I imagine you as nowhere. If I imagine you as somewhere where I can imagine you? On a cloud? Slipping back into the sea? As some kind of energy?

I like to imagine you as full of awe and wonder. Full of peace. I like to imagine you NOT suffering. NOT full of pain and worry and heartbreak. I like to imagine you free.

I want to live fully brother. More fully. I want to be awake with the love of you.  I want the love of you to help me awake to love.

I am full of silence today. Just the hum of the fan on this laptop. No music. Just the London buses passing by.

You do not suffer my brother. I am closing my eyes and seeing you. Hearing you.

You are here.

I began the first half of this article (Notre Dame Review #4) by mentioning some of the limits to the legendary hospitality Ireland has shown to its poets. If you arrive in Ireland from any point of departure outside of Eastern Europe, you will indeed find a public far more willing than the one you left behind to grant poets the recognition all but the most ascetic secretly crave. However, this hospitality has never extended to Irish poets w…
