Imagination and Terror


When sunset was a match put to the western sky,
hell blazed over the Galway Road.
From my bedroom window, I watched the clouds catching fire,
the inferno spreading towards my house.

At the end of the day, hell conquered heaven.
My house so close;
getting into bed, I anticipated apparitions,
knowing that God’s bright sun had fallen into that fire.
