Poem #9 - Michael O'Leary

Another Dream of You, too!

After our usual denial, affirmation
Conversation, you asked me if I had
Seen U2 on TV. With indignation
I replied, as a band they aren’t bad

Although Bono annoyed me at times
With pompous utterances and demeanour.
You said they sang one of our favourite rhymes
‘With or Without You.’ Past-midnight hour

I awoke alone, and again without you
As the radio’s song faded in the night
The announcer said “from the Joshua Tree”
With or without you I can’t live, is too 
Apt a sentiment, uncannily right
As expression of the love of you and me
