Somehow - @edepaor

Updated: Apr 12

Clouds shred thin


enough to reveal the sun,


hanging where it always hung,


baking firm the soil beneath our feet.


The cracks before


just stretch marks now,


wrinkles on a well-worn sheet,


crazing on an ice-skimmed lake.


Fingers find the new grown skin,


rising proud above the flesh –


gnarled, sated, cardinal.


Name: Eilín de Paor


Place of Residence: Dublin, Ireland


Your Favourite Quote: “What if our bodies were transparent, like a washing-machine window? How wondrous to watch ourselves. Joggers would jog even harder, blood pumping away. Lovers would love more. God damn! Look at that semen go! Diets would improve – kiwi fruit and strawberries, borscht with sour cream.” Lucia Berlin


Your one wish for the world: That we embrace the concept of universal design: creating spaces and society in ways that include rather than exclude.
