Portrait of Shop Window

Portrait of Shop Window

Department store windows light
inscrutably lipped manikins holding
empty gifts.

Nicollet Mall is nearly
bright as Grafton Street. Both too
bulbed and sequined.

I like old things.

Stuttering limestone fences, doorways that open
to waves. Dun Aengus and
the Seven Churches.

Old things, your Ghost of the Holy Spook shirt,
misproportioned, sleeves hanging, gap-waisted.
Things worn soft,
things like us.
