Gorey Library Nearly Open

Good News! Gorey Library is nearly open for business. We are trying to contact the powers-that-be to establish if their offer of a meeting room still stands.

In the meantime, here is a poem by Carol Boland


The Secret
Does it burn 
Carol Boland

leave lashes on your back
or smack like the crack of kindling
a gunshot on a Sunday afternoon.

Does it pierce your skin
sting like a nettle
or can you smudge it better
with a dock weed.

And when your tongue is tied

to the struts of your mouth
does it smother the flame
can you snuff it out
or does it leave an emptiness
a hole in your chest
from a spear thrown off kilter.

And in the dreaming time
does it sleep behind your eye lid
deflecting the veiled light
like a cornea.
