“I know it does not matter that I do not understand.”
Brendan Kennelly

“I go back beyond the old man
Mind and body broken
To find the unbroken man.
It is the moment before the dance begins.

Your lips are enjoying themselves
Whistling an air.
Whatever happens or cannot happen
In the time I have to spare
I see you dancing father”
Brendan Kennelly, A Time For Voices: Selected Poems 1960 1990
