at a place

near the airport,

living nearby too

and walking in the morning

when the sky seems


wider, hemmed with real

horizons, perhaps

because the detail

shows you scale;

airplanes in wide


stitching the skies

with their passage.

Diarmuid ó Maolalaí

A little about myself; I'm a graduate of English Literature from Trinity College in Dublin and recently returned there after four years abroad in the UK and Canada. I have been writing poetry and short fiction for the past eight or nine years with some success. My writing has appeared in such publications as 4'33', Strange Bounce and Bong is Bard, Down in the Dirt Magazine, Out of Ours, The Eunoia Review, Kerouac's Dog, More Said Than Done, Star Tips, Myths Magazine, Ariadne's Thread, The Belleville Park Pages, Killing the Angel and Unrorean Broadsheet, by whom I was twice nominated for the Pushcart Prize. I also recently published a short collection with Encircle Publications entitled 'Love is Breaking Plates in the Garden'.
