the madrigal, volume iii


by christian wethered

I can’t speak for long, you see –

half the hunch in in the brain, I’m sure, yes. Half the hunch is elsewhere too, flying around,

and branches quick to the wind and the afternoon kept us there and we kept in our savage conversations the words easing out but hurriedly also and it was ok was fine after all the wind and no rain.

Christian Wethered is a musician and poet living in Dublin. His first collection, Harbour', is due in 2022 with The Black Spring Press.
