shot glass
"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare


Born and raised in Northern Ireland. I studied English literature at the University of Glasgow. I now live and work in South Korea. I have had previous poems published in the Shot Glass Journal and the Fib Review.

Let Them Pass

Try to see beyond
The loafing lugubrious face
Loading up on past injuries
Of half wrongs made whole,
Try to see beyond
The vast insults maliciously moulded
And spat out through fiery eyes
Of indignant bereft,
Try to see beyond
The silence of a poisonous tension
And all the sudden violence
Of a phantom under gaslight.
Let them pass upon the glass
Of that mirrored portrait
Hidden in my soul.
