Just the Two of Us

On the whole,
I’d rather find myself
Alone with modest,
Undiscovered art,
Just the two of us
Keeping company
In some remodeled barn
Or back-room studio,
A world away from
The hectare of
Squeezed humanity
Perpetually straining
To “see” the Mona Lisa
At the Louvre.


I’ve retired after a career teaching law. I divide my time now between Athens, Georgia, in the States and the south coast of Ireland.
