Poetry happening—Oisín Breen

Oisín Breen reads ‘Six Months Bought with Dirt’ from his new collection Lilies on the Deathbed of Étaín (Beir Bua Press).

Lilies on the Deathbed of Étaín (Beir Bua Press) is a sonic hoot— wild, playful, experimental—but most of all musical, taking in everything from motherlove/fatherlove/kinlove to loss, and a journey through meaning and sound, as it hits us hard and leaves us carrying it throughout our lives. 

“Breen uses feverishly gorgeous, musical language to investigate the dimensions of desire and loss.”—Washington Independent Review of Books
