Another Sacred Heart

by Mick Paynter
For the Scouse Artist Brian O’Toole

                                        The plan was, O’Toole,
                                        for you to wrestle,
                                        with an angel bright as sun.
                                        And the angel’s plan
                                        with you harmlessly
                                        to wrestle’til death.

          Nor Heaven, nor Hell, or Purgatory, for you, there’s not.
          So, painter, now, a picture I did paint, it is.....

          See there, it’s here.....

                                        A pint of beer; when your Work’s clear,
                                        with the Good Lord, while his heart itself
                                        stands up on his breast, signifies your jest.

Y ferwis Brian O'Toole yn 2001. Y kwelir nebes samplow a y ober eev war'n wiasva Samuel Beckett Site ha war wiasva The Balsko site
