Time for Serpent and Cow

Dead will be those
who crushed the upright serpent
and the eye of the cow
will glisten brown and warm
in the beauty of its chosen fertility
when the men
in the black frocks
who beat
the bounty of our women
with their blackthorn sticks
must know
it's closing time

Martina Evans trained as a radiographer in Dublin, came to London where she took an honours degree in English and philosophy and then became a writer. She has written a number of novels. This was her first poetry collection.
