on demons

the demons slipped out
they are out more than in...most days
today they sit huddled together
out on the edge...waiting? just watching I guess.
   they look bored, a bit disgusted maybe.

sure they cycle back and poke, look for gaps,
try their old ancient tricks
I can still see them, but it is harder.

eventually they'll break off, and just leave

Soda Bread Poem

Soda bread, scones, 
and Guinness stew
Irish kitchen folk songs.

I pour a stout, later a red ale
then sip a Jameson...slow
think on my family
from Clare, Wexford, Antrim, 
Wicklow, and Cork.

Blessings, peace and rest to you
this St. Patrick's Day.
