Back to Heaney 




Hermit Songs

With cut-offs of black calico,
remnants of old blackout blinds
ironed, tacked with criss-cross threads,
we jackted the issued books.

less durable if more desired,
the mealy textured wallpaper:
its brede of bosomes roses pressed
and flattened under smoothing irons.

brown parcel paper, if need be.
newsprint, even. Anything
to make a covert for the newness,
learn you were a keeper only.
