Jessamine O Connor lives in the west of Ireland where she has been lately writing long poems without noticing. These are the first short ones in a while. Her fifth chapbook "Pact" is available through her site and, and her first full collection is due with Salmon Poetry in early 2020.

Memory Cut To Fit

Just what we needed;
a weekend away,
just you and me
and a cheap internet deal.

The horrors of
my huge reflection
bouncing from
a hundred hotel mirrors.

I moped and clung,
gravely enduring
the movements
of the bump.

Now we only remember
the floods, the detour,
the sea,
and the bargains you can find online.
