Everything in the rain

An Irish summer
Means fun activities like
Camping in the rain

Trippin’

I got home safely
Then I slept for twelve hours
What an awesome trip!

Happy Star Wars Day!
May the 4th be with you all
And also with you

And nobody booed

I tried something new
Tonight I read poetry
In front of a crowd

I had a dream…

I’m in Kilkenny
Playing board games with my friends
The dream has come true

Tsunami of sadness

His jokes always killed
Tragedy was comedy
Rest In Peace Gilbert

I feel fine

Late to the party
Two years after it began
I blame Paddy’s Day

220202

I got you babe

It’s February
Day two of the shortest month
It’ll be March soon!

Ikaris sucks

The worst character
In Marvel’s Eternals is
A bloody Scotsman

Brighter days ahead

It’s winter solstice
The shortest day of the year
Sunlight is coming!

Now I’m a bereaver

There were four Monkees
Micky Dolenz is the last
Rest in Peace Michael

The brownest month

The leaves have fallen
And Brownie’s poo is steaming
Must be November

Pod people

First game night this year
Comfy pods in The Front Room
Cluichí agus craic

A friend to many
Mother, daughter, sister, wife
Rest in Peace Sarah

Doomscrolling for the loss

Go to bed and scroll
Scroll scroll scroll scroll scroll scroll scroll
Scroll scroll scroll and sleep

Also… people suck

Why am I raging?
While sadness is part of loss
Anger is grief too

210723

Weather or not

Another scorcher
Not a thunderstorm in sight
Fuck you Met Éireann

210707

Now the real fireworks start!

For the next four months
Gird your loins and prepare for
Passels of pumpkins!

Late night – late light

Not to worry yet
The days are getting shorter
But it’s light at 10

A message to you, Rudy

“You are very rude”
She wrote to me, I replied
“I get that a lot”

Rat in a cage

I am full of rage
Linc kneads and Brownie snuggles
I am less angry

The flowers are underwater

An Irish April
The perfunctory showers
Will bring May showers

Light blue, pink and white
I see my transgender friends
You are visible

That’s awful! Awful funny!

This bears repeating
And it’s my breathing mantra
Rush Limbaugh is dead

In other good news…

Vaccinations have started
Rush Limbaugh is dead

Existing isn’t living

Constant solitude
Eternal isolation
Stifling loneliness

201230

It’s a trap!

2020 sucked
Help us 2021
You’re our only hope
