Visited late evening in mars 2019.





Enjoy!

My life.


I’ve been weighed down with the special of the day


scraped, nicked, rough-handled and often chipped.


Yet, when I’m washed, dried and stacked,


I hype myself up to endure another day of painstaking punishment


without the privilege of tasting the meal at all.

Poem: God Grew

God grew bone,
vertebrae stacked into a spine,
rib cage spread
to house his heart
and lungs,
a stomach to know hunger
and tongue to taste.

swirled into fingerprints.

Likely he had brown eyes
which blinked bleary open

Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time.
