Thrilled to have a poem ‘Isolation‘ published in The Silence. This is a Cobh based, beautifully presented project of 45 writers, artists, photographers invited to write, themed on Rob O’Connor’s haunting photography of empty streets of Cork City in these unprecedented times. Many thanks to Pat Carroll for your invitation, hard work and dedication – Art In Many Forms.
On Patrick Street, silence weaves between pavement cracks,
surrenders to white lines we are told to stand behind.
From a second story window my eyes trace the skyline,
empty light and concrete stare back at me
and I feel like a caged bird………..
