Writing Under Water

Waiting for that sweet moment
when I break the surface and gasp
a lungful of clean air
when words mean what I want them to mean
when they say what's in my eyes
and not the lies on my face
the public face worn as a thin skin veneer
exploiting those last moments before
sinking down again
back into heaviness
down to another blank page
washed clean
struggling and writing under water

Return To Tara

There is no return of the Kings
the sun will never travel from west to east
the Augur will never see the blackbirds
fly backward across a windswept hill
in Meath
under a cold Irish summer
standing alone exposed to the elements
upon the immortal mound that keeps
no hostages only memories and ghosts
