TIN HOUSE MAGAZINE

I was super happy to have two poems in the faith issue of Tin House Magazine. They were later published in my book The Green Monk (Boiler House Press). 





From my poem “Sacred Spring” in the faith issue of Tin House. A lost baby. Miscarriage. Travel. The great ships come and go.

From my poem “Baptism” in the faith issue of Tin House.
I visited a psychologist in Portadown. Think I was six. They wanted me to draw an 8. I couldn’t draw an 8. I drew two circles joined together. Over and over.
Then I got baptised at 8. My foot kept coming out of the water.
I can never get clean enough. Sinning is infinity.
