Best Poem of Dónall Dempsey

The Very Naked Name Of Love

Love, has robbed you
of your clothes

except for high high heels
pearls & long elegant gloves.

Love pauses us at this

as we fall & laugh

& your pearls become
unstrung & one by one

dance across the linoleum

like an untalented tap dance act
that doesn’t stand a chance at an audition

and you smile & kiss me & whisper:

“Perdition...alas I am
undone, sir! ”

You always were the lively one.

Here, on this hillside falling down to a river
here, in this windy weather we gather together

Dearly Beloved
