DUN LAOGHAIRE

A doorway in Dun Laoghaire

sharing a takeaway

only one night left

ferry sailing next day.

Searching for the craic

a guy smiled and pointed

to the edge of town

asked, ‘Am I included?’

Audible from afar

mandolin, banjo, guitar,

songs of rebellion

in a room above a bar.

Porter and whiskey

fueling imagination

farewell emerald island

of magic and sensation.

Halfway back

homeward bound

heads spinning

aching for firm ground.

David Subacchi
