saw this place at the foot of my grave

I gave myself in awe to childish hope and promise. The tomb it was dug by those whom you know and love and trust. There’s just enough room to put you in. And you fear that you lust, and you know what you love must be clean. and you fear what you’ve seen, what you’ve touched, what you’ve been. And I’m touched. I’m not naming anyone at all. I’m soon to return there’s soon to be fire in my veins again. I’m almost home. I’m almost ready. Anno Birkin, 1999

Enda Walsh


bedbound In bedbound, a father and daughter share a small bed. He talks frantically about his extraordinary past in furniture sales; she talks no less compulsively about anything at all, to fill the terrifying silence in her head.
