As We Turned To Go! - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

Perfect stone
that fit perfectly

into the palm
of his hand

as if God
had fashioned
it for it

my uncle skims
the smoothness of the stone

across the surface of the Crosshaven sea

where after 3
perfect skips

it hits
the horizon

knocking the sun
down with a gong

staining the water.
