Sometimes It's Sunny in April

by Eoin Dynan
(Belfast, Down, Northern Ireland)

god it's gorgeous.
the weather is
roasting and the
sun beams
a cartoonish ray
wearing shades
like a child's drawing.

my thick sweatshirt
hides me and
my insecurities.
the cable knit cocoon cooks me
and i fear my fear
can be smelled
over my cologne
and roll on deodorant

I'm stuck inside
my £4,500
academic chain
locks my doors and
i must live
through the stories of
my friends
whilst pretending
to not spite
their joy.

my sunglasses
give me a strength.
i feel like Reed or Dylan.

Eoin Dynan: I'm an Irish student from just outside Belfast. I study music at Queen's University Belfast. I started writing because of the impact the writings of others has had on me and I would like to pass that feeling on to others

This poem is included in Poetry World #5, published in the Wax Poetry and Art Library.
