Irish language poster

Those dashing young men Conor and David asked me to do an illustration for a series of Irish language poetry posters for use in schools. Here's the English translation:

A minute in the morning

A smell of ironing
this morning in the apartment
on Hanover Quay
You standing there at the table
your clean shirt
for an appointment in work
and me looking at you.

The iron moves slowly
over the clothes,
removing every wrinkle.

I hope that things between us will be
as smooth as that, my precious.
