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.
