Sung by Bláthnaid Conroy Murphy.


The truth is
The sea would not have us
Barred we are
From the coral
And the pink palaces
Of filigree pewter
Mermaids on rocks
Haunt us
What do we care
About these ditherers
Trapped between one
Thing and the other

Air and Water
And still they taunt
You are ninety percent water
Our Riposte
You don’t exist
In the eye of the homini
Last surviving strain
Of Human family
Nothing exists
Except us
We made sure of that
Do we exist
Are we just
The dust
On the eyelash of God
Has he brushed us aside
Are we falling into
The air
When will we hit the ground
All that dust
Our cousins
We bludgeoned
Out on the savannah
Mingling with the bison
The dinosaur
The Angels.
Their wings they say
Were the weight of a
Full grown man
Long before the
Copy cats
All Creation
Is remembering.
