Dublin 2010

In Dublin’s soggy city we strolled in rain soft and not so

then in evening’s protracted twilight beams

refracted through Georgian memory and bus horns

meandered hand in hand past Grafton Street buskers and into Stephen’s Green

bussed under lilac bushes and Wilde’s wistful gaze

counted gray cygnets and moon-coloured women who’d doffed their shirts in

the warmth of setting sun that red-etched their lingerie bedecked breasts

that followed the sun like solar panels.

We paused, drank wine and one another each

layer by layer languidly unwrapped, tasted, sipped

savored the proffered vintage examined their legs and colour

barely aged the bite just right for the occasion: fresh.

From our perch I watched a passing lorry on Dawson Street and wondered

was this how Leopold loved his Molly or what drove him to distraction or what?
