Neu! Post-Truth Poetics DAY THIRTY – Sean O’Brien

Away You Go

Then when you find you disagree,
And when they hang you in the street,
Remember: solidarity
Was once the ground beneath your feet,
And now you’re dancing on the air
For hangmen, hangmen everywhere

 

Sean O’Brien is a multi-award-winning poet and critic who has published more than a dozen collections of poetry, essays and criticism. His latest collection The Beautiful Librarians was published by Picador in 2015.
