' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' Red Blouse - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

Your red blouse
with the yellow triangular buttons

takes your shape
& then deflates

as the wind
mockingly blows life into it.

All day
against a blue of sky

so blue it would have to be lived
to be believed

it drying
on the rotary dryer

the mad whirly gig
of Time

living your dying.
