(15/07/56 / Curragh Camp, Co. Kildare, Eire.)

The Eyes Are Not The Same

Her son blossoming
into his dead father’s
face
shocking her
wearing his old man’s coat.
In the mirror
it’s as if

age like an evil spell
has befallen only her
& her dead husband
(dead a decade now)
hasn’t changed at all.
Their wedding photograph
smiles upon the wall.
She calls her son
by his father’s name

who, smiling, turns
& laughs:
“Who? ”
just the way
her husband would have had.
