The Short Story by Peadar O’Donoghue:

Live live live
another sip of death
another day between
one eye bright
one eye closed
one day all this will be yesterday
different the same the one
the man with his head on his hand
the man with the stick
the man in the ground
the man in ashes
we all come we all go
I won’t tell the secret
I won’t reveal the truth
I will tick all the boxes
Bite the hand that feeds
Take what’s owed
take what’s coming to me
what passes you by
Passes by
walks on by
the wild side
the wild dream
the one eye love
shadows boxing
soft focus hard lens
brittle time
and this too shall come to pass
and this and this and this.
