Dom Marmion Bridge

When you leave the shopping centre,
as if from this Rodeo Drive,
from the car park, awaiting a spot to exit,
left or right, you might see,
a reference, a hint, catch a glimpse,
of the marker on the bridge,
which tells that he walked, strolled,
from the church house, around this then boreen,
to Ballinteer, Dundrum village.

[Hata Bildir]
