Bomb

by Patrick Stack

Bomb audio

Bomb was written in the Summer of 1984 while staying with friends in Kildimo, County Limerick. The threat of nuclear war was ever present in people’s minds at the time, with Shannon Airport just the other side of the Shannon Estuary from us a probable target in the event.
It is taken from my first poetry collection, The Parting (2013). This recording was made on 21 June 2020.
