Two Dublin Poems by Anthony Weir

I. At the Conference of Poetry Police
an observer who claimed
that a tree was worth a thousand poets
was declared mentally ill
and unfit to work at the paper-mill.

II. The greatest disability
is wanting to be normal.
The second greatest
is normality.

From: Garwood, Andi and Weir, Anthony, Fearful Symmetry, 1996, Dissident Editions: Loughkeelan, Northern Ireland, p. 2.
