In Kennedy's Song
⏩ Frankie Quinn is a former republican prisoner who is now a community activist. He is the author of Open Gates, a book of poetry.
She lifted her head and as the
Tears rolled down her silken face
They fell on his chest like rocks
And cut deep whence her pain emerged.
She pulled him towards her
Felt him meld content in their confusion.
Released from her, a fearsome beauty
Held captive in her eggshell heart.
So he drank her melancholy and tasted her
Fear from deep within her soul and said
Be with me.
