As soon as you left I was hungry. A plate of mashed potato
would do it, with milk and butter.
Or haddock
buckwheat maybe, or pigs’ ears with marjoram.
Or even spinach would do
and custard.
Cod’s roe – you don’t need caviar every day –
dried cod
pigs’ tails
tripe – I must cook you my tripe : dann wirst du verrückt
fish and chips and eels too
but now pigs’ ears is top of the bill tonight. Cooked for 1/2 hour
then cut in strips like spaghetti and laid on a pudding of peas
with a small onion cut in fine pieces stirred through it and a
bit of treacle
haggis and turnips and swedes and parsnips too.
(Ich bin ausgelaugt. I’ve lost 10 pounds. All I get to eat is pap.)
– Or soda bread with Irish butter and not too little black pudding
and a but of pepper…oxbrain with pepper, you know, but the best
brain is pig’s brain, parsley, pepper with black bread,
that’s fantastic.
That’s the day tomorrow ? – Wednesday. Tuesday is the best day
to buy brain because Monday is slaughter day and by Wednesday
the specialists have take it all away.
(Ich bin so ausgelaugt. Ich felle flau). 


The Vision of Mac Conglinne

Wheatlet son of Milklet,
Son of juicy Bacon,
Is mine own name. 

Honeyed Butter-roll
Is the man’s name
   That bears my bag. 

Haunch of Mutton
Is my dog’s name,
   Of lovely leaps. 

Lard, my love,
Sweetly smiles across
   the brose. 

Cheese curds, my girl,
Goes round the spit,
   Fair is her fame. 

Corned Beef is my son
Who beams over a cloak,
   Enormous, of fat.

Savour of Savours
Is the name of my lady’s maid :
   Morning early
   across Newmilk Lake she went. 

Beef-lard, my steed,
an excellent stallion
   That increases studs;
A guard against toil
Is the saddle of cheese
   upon his back. 

A large necklace of delicious cheeseacurds
   Around his back;
His halter and traces all
   Of fresh butter 

(from the 6th century Irish).
