“Grafton Street at 4:52” by Conor Courtney

Grafton Street at 4:52

I don’t think there will be many people at my funeral,
Not that I’d mind,
There were crowds of people at Dad’s
But it’s not like they helped with the silence,
I doubt they ever do.


Conor Courtney is an aspiring Irish poet and author. He began writing while studying English at Trinity College Dublin. Previously, Conor’s publications were limited to legal journals, as he also has an interest in law, which stemmed from also studying law in Dublin Business School.
