' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' Creator Of The Heavens - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

Beetlejuice O' Ryan
we called him

drank himself silly
(real name Billy)

placing the stars
in the4 sky

exactly where they should be
constellations

flocked
to his hand

as he drunkenly
created them

for our amazed
eyes


the stars coming alive
with archers & maidens

Orion
the apple of his eye

as if he had personally
put them there

adjusted their position
until they were perfect

& then falling
from grace

courtesy of the wine

flowing
through
his veins

he'd stumble
& stutter









th rough the icy
night

singing at the top
of his voice

Beetlejuice O' Ryan

Creator of
the Heavens.
