Oisín Breen: The Last Resting Place

Neon is

A blurred vision

Of prayer,

Neon is the seed

Of burning till you drop,

Exhausted, uninhibited

In madness.

Neon is the clouds,

Rhythmically chanting

The names of the dead.

It is the deflection of thought,

And, in action, a one way trip

Through needlepoint.

And action is the arm of Neon,

And needlepoint the chorus,

The last resting place

Of love.
