Walking among horses in the dark with dog
At 8:12pm the light in Cork has almost faded away - walking in the dark is tricky - there are horses in fields & stars overhead. Light matters of course - and how do we measure the speed of light? And why is it not possible for anything to travel faster than light? There is so much Paul O'Mahony doesn't know & understand.

3 Poems by Charles Bukowski
A Bukowski fan reads 3 poems: "His writing was influenced by the social, cultural, and economic ambience of his home city of Los Angeles.[4] His work addresses the ordinary lives of poor Americans, the act of writing, alcohol, relationships with women, and the drudgery of work. Bukowski wrote thousands of poems, hundreds of short stories and six novels, eventually publishing over 60 books. The FBI kept a file on him as a result of his column, Notes of a Dirty Old Man, in the LA underground newspaper Open City..." (Wiki)

On the road from Cork to golf #audio365
Louis had to be dropped to kennels for 36 hours. Paul made a mistake, and arrived there too early. There's a bit of singing from Act 1 of Verdi's opera La Traviata. The poor Minister for Health gets it in the neck from Paul who pours out spleen. Delayed by his enjoyment of coffee on the road, you hear a man hurrying afraid he's going to be late for the 4-ball in Greystones Golf Club. The last sigment was recording while driving back to Cork.

INSIDIOUS - a fairly new poem
Insidious I was walking along a couple of roads, one turned to the sea, the wave, the water, the tide ... one sloped to the mountain, the scree, the rock, the peak ... I followed a breath like a hunter. There were distractions, high like eagles, busy like bees, imaginations like sugar, addictions, paradise, a sweet-shop shining scent of fish nectar, pollen, ice. I was walking along a couple of roads when the earth gave birth to twins, and twins to twins I followed a breath like a hunted fox. ______________ Read by the poet Paul O'Mahony Recorded in kitchen in Cork on 16 July 2018

WANDERLUST - Why do people walk?
This is a serious listen - "Wanderlust, A History of Walking" by Rebecca Solnit - first published in UK by Verso (imprint of New Left Books) 2001. The reading starts in a bed in Cork Ireland - a very sleepy Paul O'Mahony struggles to start his walk through the introduction to a 300 page paperback book. "I know nothing about Rebecca Solnit. I've done no research - it was the title & subtitle that hooked me" - says Paul. "I have no idea how much of it I'll read - or how many comments I'll make - as I walk across & down through the pages. "Maybe I'll be educated or disinterested, delighted or distracted, but I'm pretty sure I'll be curious & have mixed feelings."

Yad Vashem was first proposed in September 1942, at a board meeting of the Jewish National Fund, by Mordecai Shenhavi, a member of Kibbutz Mishmar Ha'emek...." (Wiki) The Hall of Names at Yad Vashem is the Jewish People’s memorial to each and every Jew who perished in the Holocaust – a place where they may be commemorated for generations to come. The main circular hall houses the extensive collection of “Pages of Testimony” – short biographies of each Holocaust victim.

Paul left his dog Louis in the car while he had breakfast? Was that cruel? Should he be ashamed of himself? Should he have gone back home to get a lead - to tie the dip up outside - or should he have skipped breakfast? How do you judge Paul's actions? What do you think you would have done?

The Islander - (poem for #audiomo Day 29)
Specially recorded for #audiomo - first public reading by Paul O'Mahony. The Islander Chapter One He could have been on Sherkin, Inishbofin, Skelligs or even Rathlin... He was an outlaw, cast away from the land, away from his people. His face didn’t fit, his family were not from the right side of town. There was no time for him, he could rot there. Eventually his spirit would break, he would comply, he would conform, he would be broken - or so they thought... It would teach them, it would show them not to meddle with our family, not to get above themselves. Yea, 27 winters on Sherkin 27 springs on the Skelligs 27 summers on Rathlin 27 years of nightmares on any island you fancy. It was good to keep him there, disappeared. Our family had need of safety, his family were dangerous, thugs, revolutionaries, communists, rapists. oh yea, uncouth, uncivilised, Untermenschen. Chapter Two Our family is special, we have survived our own wars. We’re used to feeling superior ... (continued)

My manifesto : I stand against the crowd I stand out from the crowd I am an individual Odd Different Singular Misfit Awkward in my comfort Edgy in my skin Alive in my own little way I live my say I give the best shot I can Every day. I stand against the crowd of wasters who fritter their life away their way. I waste my life my way I fritter my days into the oblivion I fashion every step I say. Because I am who am Me Condemned to be myself I stand out from the crowd comfortable in my discomforting way that comes from every pore every sore every score of my expressions. It's my art The heart of my song The liver that cleans my spleen seen in all my glory every time I stand against the crowd Each and every difference Friction Grating Unconforming Uncomplying Understandable me. See that fella hovering on the edge the one who isn't fitting in the one with the shifty eyes the glint of his own You can smell that he's An outsider A weirdo An awkward one An individual Heart ...

WANTING MORE - (poem for #audiomo Day 18)
Poem by Paul O'Mahony - read by Paul O'Mahony ________ Wanting more I’ve always been found wanting more than a woodpecker carves into the last tree in the last forest, wanting more than my parents ever offered, – even more than father bestowed on one of his good days. I was born wanting more time for love. I’ve grown hungrier by the day, thirstier by night, always grasping for clean air. There’s never been a father more loved, ever since letters of infinity were strung together on a necklace that shines with promise and gradually shrinks until it chokes the living daylight out of me. I’ve always wanted to beg. Like most beggars, my voice has been feeble – barely enough courage to pay the price father demanded. I’ve always been found wanting to trust more. I’m used to starving. Bless me Father, for I have sinned on a daily basis. Let me do penance – only let me have time to pay.

REUNITED - (poem for #audiomo Day 14)
Reunited I left the house of my reincarnation before the swallows returned the year they cancelled the Grand National. I walked out the door before dawn disappeared, drove through a dream as if in a dismal draft of corked Dolcetto. I pitched my leaky tent in Wiltshire ’til forced out by a wife’s thirst for regeneration. Winter hardened the road I travelled as I wished to wallow like a pig in the hot mud Bladud found. I sailed back to the Province of my birth in a ferry beset by bleeding ballast, into the storm of a tiger’s saliva ... (continued in audio) #audiomo

YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIKE OYSTERS (poem for #AudioMo)
You don’t have to like oysters You don’t have to like oysters, there’s nothing wrong with you if caviar and truffles turn you off. Though some will look down their nose at you if you decline champagne, it’s not a sin to spend your life without a diamond ring or stud. As for grand opera, Wimbledon, Ascot and the Royal Tea Party, you’re not alone in preferring to dunk ginger nut biscuits in Earl Gray and nibble soldiers with soft-boiled eggs for breakfast. I met one honest man who ate puffer fish before his wife – with their Johney in mind. He founded a not-for-profit that cared for orphans in Somalia or earthquake victims in Katmandu. There are bungee jumpers, macrobiotic vegans and others devoted to saving earthworms from global warming, before the bees run out. You don’t even have to be like any of them, if you want your tombstone to be admired. Your legacy may not even be on your agenda – and who cares if no one remembers your greatest achievement? No one ... (continued in audio)

(continued in audio) Song of my Butterfly No one heard the song of the butterfly not even my mother, my brothers, nor the dog-walker who strode by our garden and allowed his Bernese Mountain Dog to pee all over my butterfly’s buddleia. No one noticed the sigh of my Painted Lady as she mated with the neighbour’s Painted Man ... (continued in audio)

BACKTRACKING (poem for #AudioMo day 7)
Backtracking They robbed one man of his loneliness when they automated the Skelligs - a lighthouse for the wider world went out. You could feed a multitude on the soft greenery with the loaves and fishes behind that view. We climbed the stairs assembled with the same architectural craft as those stones igloos. The cell opened up first light, then warmth, it became easier to see the attraction There’s no hardship in those cells just the pain you bring inside that’s yours to cherish.

YOU JUST CAME TO ME (poem for #audiomo Day 6)
Paul O'Mahony reads his poem "You just came to me" for #AudioMo 2018) Pig-sty to cattle track, anemones to fountain-pen, you sat in yellowed armchair, among psychiatric alumni, released into a fighting streetscape, where burnt-out cars took place of bicycles. Your warrior-self listened to every voice with the greeting of a saint who wrote with a sun-lit plume. Prince of the messengers, carrier of connections, pointing companions around wild flowers, through the thicket of everyday life, out into a clearing, ever shadowed, ever dappled, your painterly hand ever active, you spoke of trees in a family field, the feed from bonamhs that licked your fingertips, the rub of the beast that reminded you of animated conversations, the rough warm blanket into which you were born. You walked every inch of the lane that led from farm-house, past copulating ragwort, to a table strewn with words drawn together for the sake of safe passage. In that armchair, you smiled ...

THERE ARE TIMES - (poem for #audiomo day 5)
There are times There are times the rain is so heavy, and the cloud so thick I can hardly see. There are times the dark is so choking I can hardly breathe.

Growing You’re never too old to waste your life - the old man cried To fritter away an hour a day and spend the coins of change No way you lose that fear of the living - the old man cried Spend your time awaiting, waiting to be seen and you see it all slip by You’re never beyond being sorry for me - the old man cried Hold back, hang in, stay put as your life goes down the drain.

How tough is that Louis in the window? The one with the funny tale How tough is that Louis in the window? I do hope that Louis won't fail. I must take a ship to Patagonia And leave my poor Fortune at home If she has a heart, she won't be loathsome And dear Louis will have his trombone. How tough is that Louis in the window? The one with the funny tale How tough is that Louis in the window? I do hope that Louis won't fail. Beyond the internet there are planets With flashlights that breathe in delight My love needs a Louis to enthral her Compel her to cry with her might. I don't want Mercury or History, I don't want a Venus that talks, I don't want a bowl of little Neptunes She can't take a Black Hole for a walk. How tough is that Louis in the window? The one with the funny tale How tough is that Louis in the window? I do hope that Louis won't fail.

The Funeral of Jan Palach - #poem by David Shapiro
The Funeral of Jan Palach [read by Paul O'Mahony in Jan Palach Square, Prague] When I entered the first meditation I escaped the gravity of the object, I experienced the emptiness, And I have been dead a long time. When I had a voice you could call a voice, My mother wept to me: My son, my beloved son, I never thought this possible I’ll follow you on foot. Halfway in mud and slush the microphones picked up. It was raining on the houses; It was snowing on the police-cars. The astronauts were weeping, Going neither up nor out. And my own mother was brave enough she looked And it was alright I was dead.

First wave I sent on Anchor V1 in July 2016
I've just found where all the Waves I made on Anchor V1 are - feeling very pleased & relieved because I thought I'd have to ask Anchor to send them to me - I thought they'd been taken down. It's fitting that my first one minute Wave - a "response wave" should have been to Bernie Goldbach - he was the one who introduced me to Anchor - and thereby changed my life - and brought me into contact with many people I feel have enriched my life.

NOT INTERESTED IN IRELAND
Travelling thru the lifescape Paul O'Mahony stumbled across a village where the inhabitants were interested in what they called positivity. Where they advised each other all the time. Where other people's compositions were their bread & butter. The people there weren't at all interested in revealing much about themselves. Nor did they see much point in talking about where they lived and where they worked out what the weather was like. Paul needed this experience. Other villages are sometimes worth exploring - Paul says here. You hear an Irishman asking for tea, sausages & bacon - so he'd be well enough fed while watching kids on ponies. Only certain types will find this episode worth listening to

Complaint About Anchor From Visually Impaired User
Paul O'Mahony is visually impaired- from birth. His eye has even declined in strength - even when wearing spectacles. Paul can't read the date on which Anchor "messages" are sent. (He spent over 60 seconds trying unsuccessfully to read the date stamp of a message from Robert Neill in western Ontario Canada) - that pissed him off. That minute will never be recovered. Unless developers @Anchor (1) enlarge the font or (2) increase the contrast - Paul will be discombobulated & disgruntled forevermore. Contact Paul on Twitter @omaniblog

Throughout Paul sips tea that slowly moves from cup to body in his kitchen in Cork - as Louis the family English Setter gently sleeps within eyesight - and rain falls outside.
