Sunshine In Her Step - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

Here in the reality
of the public library

she thinks of him
& what

...she'd like to do

to him
& him

...to her.

But observing

the sullen notice
for SILENCE

she steps inside
some imaginary library

inside her
...mind

where she can(& does)
exactly

as she...pleases.

Pleases both
him & her!

A firm hand
placed upon her

...shoulder:

'Are you alright
...madam? '

(A worried librarian
enquiring?)

'Would you like
a glass of water? '

(as tremblingly she tells him)

'Quite...
...all right...thank you! '

'Quite...
...alright! '

she affirms

and with a big grin

gathering up her
books & daydreams

walking suggestively
out into the Spring

... sunshine.
