The Bloodingby Patrick Stack
The Blooding audio
The Blooding was written in 2016 and was published in my second poetry collection, Rage (Revival Press, 2017). ‘cipin‘ in the first line is a North Kerry usage and derives from the Irish ‘cipín‘ meaning ‘little stick’ or ‘twig’ – the c is hard (pronounced the same as /k/ in English).
