'On Property' by Oisin Breen

It is to the phantasm that I speak

to the lyre

to its humour conjoined

to its bucolic lung

to it,

forever twinned

to the collapsing leaves,

of autumn bloody, bent and on her knees

She forages

for berries,


and nuts.

She forages

while we lick our fattened gums,

while we guilty guard with guile,

the stockade full.
