How Your Favourite Earrings Fell Out Of Favour - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

Your glittering
earring

falls amidst
the chatter

into your drink.

There it hides
amidst the ice

cleverly camouflaged
amongst the cubes.

You reach
to take another dainty sip

but being thirsty
down the lot in one
...gulp!

You wear one
earring.

See how it glitters on your right ear
catching the light.

You carry the other one

within
you.

All night you fret & worry.

It being not me
of course I say: “Don’t worry! ”

“All things must pass! ”

And true to my word
it does.


But for you it’s a pain in the ass.
