The cup

Posted on juli 12, 2022 by spoord

Before you sleep
take the cup,
toss out the dregs,
turn on the tap

swill out
and rinse again.

Before you lay it
by to drain

How many mouths
have touched it?


How many times?
And when will it
be broken?

For surely the cup
will come
to be broken-

and a time for breaking

were implied in the making.

Uit een Ierse gedichtenbundel genaamd Oven Lane van Michael Coady.

Gekregen van Paddy onze Ierse vriend.
