Aran Donovan

Each day sweeter and sweeter

Sometimes I hear myself talk and I
Am the most fabulous person
Trala expertise etc showboat etc

Otherwise I am mirrorface aghast at
Who is that singing
Sideways and offbeat. These moments up

and down these serious
Moments breathing. I eat honey
For breakfast. I am milk at the knees.

There’s no withstanding
Anything. I am not crying about that.
