Trio – Clonakilty Pub, County Cork

A melody as old as love
or tyranny. A song that ran
the conversation down. Above
the half-mopped table-top
a towel and hand
rubbed circles in the air.
Long after the last traces
of the song had gone
a silence waited where
the Guiness glasses stopped
half-way to faces.
