That’s All Folks! - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

Falling for you
was such a joke.
In cartoon land I would have been
Wily Coyote

running out of ground & only realising
(halfway in mid-air)
that there was a thousand feet of canyon

Only time for a side-long glance
(recognition of my plight dawnin’)
& then that brief wave goodbye
Gravity sure hurts
when it turns into ground.

Don’t ever let anyone tell you
that Love don’t hurt
when your head’s
just a puff of dust
at the bottom of a cartoon canyon.
