COFFEE IN THE TIME OF COVID.


Who would have thought we’d be sprawled on the grass,
Picnicking?
Jane in a fold up chair, The August day
warm, a gap between the showers.

Passers-by smile as wisps of conversation waft on the breeze:

- The Apostrophe Preservation Society;

- Transubstantiation;

- Gaia;

- Ruby Wax;

- Lemon Soap and Blazes Boylan.

Who are these people making daisy chains and talking of semi colons with such ardour ?

Tá athas orm !

The Unitarians are on fire
in Stephen’s Green!

The Damer Hall
never had it this good.
