Pocket-money love- Daragh Fleming

We only work on the weekends

like full-time students with

part-time jobs.

There is no 9-5, no Monday

through Friday version of us

I can’t even imagine you existing

on a Tuesday afternoon.

This is pocket-money love

which will keep us afloat until

we graduate to become real adults

and find real adult love.


Daragh Fleming is a short fiction writer from Cork in Ireland who

uses a conversational style to delve into complex themes which emerge in

everyday life. He has two collections of short stories published by

Riversong Books; The Book of Revelations (2019) and If You Are Reading

This Then Drink Water (2020). Recently he was the winner of the Cork

Arts 'From The Well' Short Story Competition.
