Rhona Byrne Overview

Macdara Woods Overview


by Macdara Woods

I am here in my waiting room
Over the aural park
Hearing the announcement
Of how the railway lines
Will soon be disconnected

But how beautiful is the luas
That runs above the park
Beneath my bedroom window
Quick and busy in the dark
Imprinting sense on things

Up here where I turn on the light
To make a note of it
While down there nightly in the rain
The ghost-train of my life
Rolls on across the steppes
