    Dear Mr Grennan, I love your poetry very much and I decided to translate most of them into Russian. I am a freelance journalist writing for the Russian newspaper in Dublin Nasha Gazeta. Would you be so kind to contact to me as I need your permission to publish your poetry in Russian.
    Thank you very much for your amazing work

in the dark here, years

from belief, on the edge
of tears. It doesn't matter. ...
