I live in Dublin, Ireland. Sometimes. Most times I live in my head, quite unaware of my surroundings – if you know what I mean… If you succeed in tracking Sean Walsh, please let me know, ok? I've been searching for him for years…

Close Thing!

Published on Wednesday 19th October 2022 by Sean Walsh

Oh, and one night there during the week when you were away,

didn’t I walk into the front room thinking it was empty.  

And what do y’know, Mammy and Maggie

sittin’ behind the lace curtains

at one of the windows looking down at the crowds

going past in Park Street and across at the neighbours…  

And when I switched on the light they jumped up

and you’d swear I was after committin’ a mortal sin

the way they went for me!

And Mammy sayin’ she’d slaughter me with the dish cloth

when she got me down to the kitchen…  

And why wouldn’t I switch on the light – wasn’t it dark?..

– from Travels with my Dad, my new ebook and paperback on Amazon
