Poems by Peadar O'Donaghue (Ireland)
Published in issue 40 of The Ofi Press
And so it is.
instead of keeping all this and that
then you’ll go to bed early
while I drink until dawn.
there would be better days
‘til the waves crash in
and no longer go out,
‘til the sun falls from the bluer sky,
‘til you and me die
in hope of death being
nothing but the end.
Peadar's second collection 'The Death of Poetry' is due out from Salmon later this year. He co-edits PB magazine http://thepoetrybusmag.wix.com/change
His ambition is to get two good night's sleep in a row.
