    It was so lovely to meet you, Donall. I have read your poetry and it is beautiful. But having seen the way you bring it to life in a three-dimensional sort of way, taking the listener right into the scenarios as if you were performing vivid and colourful one-man plays I will no longer 'read' your poems but 'live' them. Keep on flowing.....

    734 poems. Crikey. I didn't know you'd been so busy. I have 60, that cause me limited squirming.

Best Poem of Dónall Dempsey

' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' Huh! Poems! (For Onelia)

My poems
are at that difficult stage


They sit around in my mind
all day

doing nothing except
lying there.

I remember
when I gave birth to them

they were so

now they are just so

scoffing biscuits
over the computer

so the crumbs
get stuck between the words

leaving their dirty

scattered all over the sofa

borrowing my similes
without telling me

corrupting words
too young to know better.

I long for them
to leave home

go find a ...

The Way The Story Goes

Always enchantments
falling from your lips.

made real

made from the nearness
of your breath...a kiss.
