Last Tuesday Fabulous Arthur Quinn was found dead in his house

“Fabulous Arthur Quinn

and The Rhythm Fountain,

Cloudland, 1967.”

They saw the advertisement

in the Roscommon Herald;

it was in a box under the bed.

The Fountain must have dried up

quickly; Arthur worked

in the meat factory for years.

Left with a broken wrist in 1983

and went home,

he can’t have been that old.

They said Fabulous Arthur

must have stared at his ceiling

for at least 6 days without blinking.
