lyrics

That she sometimes
Ran ten K in the gym
And then had to
Tell everyone
That she had a
Wicked temper
But learned
To curb it
Mostly
That her favourite
Pastime
Was staring into
Space

That she looked
Out the window
Every morning
To see what colour
The sky was
And if grey
She often cancelled
The day
Though no one
Would have noticed

That her mother died
When she was seventeen
That this was a mixed
Blessing
Despite the freedom
That she was an orphan
And liked it that way
That she was usually wrong
About everything
That she was somehow
Against every grain
Despite her best
Intentions
And even her
Worst ones
That she was soft spoken
That she had to be miked
When she gave readings.
That she lived
Long ago
That terrible
Century
That we’re not
Quite sure
Where she’s buried
Probably Offaly
Or Kerry.
