Sample piece from No Place Like It

Eileen Gray at Collins Barracks Museum, Dublin

come into the parlour...

The idea of it; lancing a tear of lacquer
from the rhus and holding up a shell,
as one might, for a drop of the oozing

Christ. So agile her mind playing on
a lacquered screen, lantern, dressing table,
lightweight chair, on this living space

drawn into being as if awaiting
our dawdle through her rooms, suitors
who desire to be uplifted, held, approved.
