Fragments - S.C. Flynn
There will always be another generation
to record the same experiences,
making us regret all over again
the perfect piece of theatre,
shouted in the depths of the night
and whispered in the light of day,
that could have been made from
the mediocre tragedy,
quaintly absurd production -
ordinary, quiet, a little disillusioned,
small grey smudges on the tapestry of time -
that we lived and left as fragments.
S.C. Flynn was born in Australia of Irish origin and now lives in Dublin. His poetry has recently been published in Cyphers, The Galway Review, Ink Sweat & Tears, Crow of Minerva and Drawn to the Light.
