DAVID BEST'S TEMPLE BURNING IN DERRY

DAVID BEST'S TEMPLE BURNING IN DERRY

First day of spring,
an eclipse of the sun.
Annealed grief rains
in the form of ash
drifts over the River Foyle.
David Best's temple burns
the troubled past.
I remember Sunday,
Bloody Sunday.
My grandmother sobbing
as she cradled the radio.

3/21/15





Annealed grief in the form of ashes
drifts over the River Foyle.
I remember Sunday, Bloody Sunday.
My grandmother crying as she cradled the radio.
